Zhaohua Zhang is a visual communicator who was born in Liaoning Province and studied in Beijing. As a child growing up in China’s most important industrial base (the Ruhr region of China), he witnessed the prosperity of his hometown as a child and the struggles and decay of transitioning to a market economy. Therefore, his work focuses on the deep-rooted issues in Chinese society, and how these have shaped the values of his parent’s generation of Chinese people.
