Zheng Chongbin in conversation at the Asian

In his studio
The success of Zheng’s paintings lies in his ability to render both obtrusive and elusive forms out of ink, ink wash, and acrylic media. His process is very much rooted in physicality, both of his own body and the materials he uses, which are skillfully layered on Xuan paper, a soft and textured paper which originated in ancient China and is primarily used for Chinese calligraphy and painting. Full of depth, these paintings expand the possibilities for ink as a medium and continue to push the limitations of abstract painting.
