The practice of Hua Zhang moves between kinetic sculptures, interactive installation, video and painting. To create poetic analogies that reflect on life and culture from different frames of experience, his work employs systematic structure such as drawing machine or robotic arm, and unpredictable matter such as liquid paint or wind force. Through arrange negotiation between man and machine, life and device, his works offer a chance to reconsider the relationship between human desires to our surroundings.
Hua Zhang studied printmaking at the Central Academy of Fine Art in China, and received his Master degree in Information Experience Design at Royal College of Art in the UK.
Hua Zhang lives and works in London and Beijing.
