Lot description
Chinese Contemporary artist Zhang Peng’s (b. 1981) photographs look like stills from fantasy animation films; they in fact document elaborate sets that tend to feature young Chinese girls in 'grown-up' situations. "Red No. 1" (2007) here leads Zhang's most famous "Red" Series of large horizontal photographs that feature a single young Chinese girl as subject, with an arresting image of a young girl appearing peacefully asleep on a red velvet couch and room dressed as if for a baptism or a wedding. These doll-like images of Zhang's oeuvre are brilliant, as their context, mannerisms and dress are surreal and exaggerated. This photograph measures 37 x 78 3/4 inches unframed, is in perfect condition and from an edition of just 8.

The artist was born in 1981 and graduated from the Wu Zuo Ren Art Secondary School in 2001 and in 2005 from the Oil Painting Department, Central Academy of Fine Art. Zhang's photographs are already in the permanent collection of The Saatchi Collection, UK, and his images have been in select exhibitions including "Narrative, Fantasy, Future – Exhibition of Post–70’s New Art", Tang Contemporary Art, Bangkok, Thailand, ARTSingapore, SHContemporary, Art Cologne Beijing; "Beyond Foreordination" - Contemporary Photographic Group Exhibition, Beijing and Singapore; The Beijing International Triennium and many more. He is represented by top galleries in China, Europe, The U.K. and the U.S. The artist graduated from the Wu Zuo Ren Art Secondary School in 2001 and in 2005 he graduated from the Oil Painting Department, Central Academy of Fine Art. The artist currently lives and works in Beijing, China.
