Here’s a recent version of Zhong’s short bio. Paragraph one, of course, not a problem. The second is another story. Any comments on translation welcome.
A Brief Introduction to Zhong Biao
Born in Chongqing on November 11, 1968, Zhong Biao graduated in 1991 from the Oil Painting Department of Zhejiang Academy of Fine Arts (now the China Academy of Art). He is an associate professor and master’s advisor at Sichuan Academy of Fine Arts, and a member of the China Artists Association. He lives in Beijing.
Zhong Biao uses latent energies buried in the deepest recesses of the phenomenal world to open careful examination that travels unfettered between future and past. With a new aesthetic language, he finds an accord among the disparate energies of the quotidian and the universal, building from them an ideal nation amidst multi-dimensional spaces. His perspectives have advanced with time, while his vision moves in concert with changing trends. For twenty years and more Zhong has created countless individual paintings and art happenings that have collectively situated his work as its own site for the visual production of contemporary Chinese cultural memory.
