Zhang Huan from China is one of the most influental and provocative contemporary artists. His expressions of art are affected by performance art, conceived of as existential explorations and social commentaries. The human body is a great theme for him and it’s function and communication.
This impressive artwork of people who stare with step by step painting their face to the viewer is a real shoutout of society. About the work family tree which began with his own self and three typographers drawing on it he says:“More culture is slowly smothering us and turning our faces black. It is impossible to take away your inborn blood and personality. From a shadow in the morning, then suddenly into the dark night, the first cry of life to a white-haired man, standing lonely in front of window, a last peek of the world and a remembrance of an illusory life.”
