About the Art
What the artist saysI aim to create an image that will invite viewers to contemplate spirituality and imagination, combining abstract elements and textural surfaces to highlight a reverence for the natural world and the vastness that exists between people and space.
Why we like itUsing a thoughtful combination of vivid colors and textures on her canvases, Zang captivates and welcomes you into her thoughts and feelings.
Where we hang itZifeng’s gestural brushwork and saturated palette would work best hung solo in a minimalist space.
About the Artist
Zifeng ZangPhiladelphia-based abstract artist Zifeng Zang explores the ways in which nature inspires and informs her work through her intuitive sense of color. Her paintings are dynamic expressions of movement and color, with random interactions between vibrant hues taking center stage. She endeavors to capture the unpredictability and fluid nature of her pigments as they blend to create a sense of energy and liveliness. Inspired by nature, music, and everyday experience, she is drawn to more subtle moments – the sun’s warmth, the ripple of water at the river’s edge – to inform her work and reflect her emotions and feelings.
Her love for art began at a young age and continued to grow throughout her formal education, with dual BFA degrees from Jilin University in China and West Chester University of Pennsylvania. While her experience as a graphic designer and brand manager in both advertising and tech allowed her to hone my skills in creating imagery characters and advertisement scripts using digital tools, she was always drawn to the traditional art of painting.
