ZOOJOO lives in Shanghai, China. He holds a MFA from China Academy of Art (majored in printmaking). Zhang’s artistic interest lies in classical Chinese literati painting, printmaking and digital media. His practice aims at bridging the technology & media bred virtual world and the subtle literati aesthetics innate to his being. Zhang has worked as a senior manager in several top internet companies such as Alibaba Group and NetEase. He is not interested in limiting himself within the ivory tower of art/academic world, instead, he is more curious about adopting new technology to transform the traditional art forms. Looking back to the history of printmaking, which had always fallen vulnerable to new technology in printing industry, and had become “art” after it turned to a leftover. Wood print, etching, and lithograph, one after another, fades into a quieter world of art. Zhang uses software modeling and script language’s auto calculation the same way as the traditional handwork in the process of printmaking. He believes that these techniques make the printmaking alive and contemporary, not the revival movements of traditional printmaking forms. His prints seem highly conceptual and surrealism with spatial and modeling complexities; but he also makes use of flaws that would be created in the process of disused printing technology such as plastic feeling, and materials such as photoresist and old film.
