TANG ZHENGWEI

Tang Zhengwei was born in 1987 in Chenzhou, Hunan province, China. After graduating from the Mural Department of China Academy of Art in Hangzhou in 2011, he continued his post-graduate studies in CAFA and graduated from the Department of Experimental Art in 2018. In a range of experimental and conceptual work, he now concentrates his artistic practice on paper cutting. Whether crafted on a water bottle label, milk carton or created as a large scale paper cut sculpture, his astonishingly detailed paper cuttings express the artist’s deepest concern and interest on the social issues, with a specific focus of his recent works on the issues of carbon emission. His artistic thinking and remarkable craftsmanship stems from the solid ground of a profound and thorough research of the global issue of carbon emission and its ecological, social and economical implications.

Tang Zhengwei’s works have been exhibited in China and Japan, some of the notable exhibitions include group shows such as “Somewhere Only We Know” in Ullens Center for Contemporary Art and KWM Art Center in Beijing in 2016, as well as the exhibition dedicated to the future of Chinese Folk Art in Ichihara Lakeside Museum in Japan the same year.
