Zhang Jian-Jun Helps Bring Together Different Worlds
He was the youngest official in a State-run art museum in China in the late 1980s. In an era when average Chinese residents earned less than 80 yuan ($13.02) a month, one of his art works was bought by a private art foundation in the US for $10,000. In his early 30s, having established his name in the Shanghai art circle, he decided to move to New York and start from scratch.
He is Chinese contemporary artist Zhang Jianjun. For the past 20-plus years, he has been moving back and forth between the cultures of the US and China. But wherever he is, his creations always maintain their connection to the roots of Chinese culture.
