May 12, 2012 – June 28, 2012
In May 2012, the Flo Peters Gallery will leave its usual path of being an exclusive photography gallery and will be presenting the latest works by internationally renowned, chinese contemporary artist Zheng Chongbin. In order to feature the 18 large-scale works, the gallery is to be especially reconstructed and will proudly open Zheng´s first solo show in Europe. Born in Shanghai in 1961, Zheng studied at the Zhejiang Academy of Fine Arts in Hangzhou (today China Academy of Fine Arts) as well as at the San Francisco Art Institute. Due to his unique education, unusual in China at that time, his artwork combines the aesthetics of the East and the West by creating a synthesis of classical Chinese art and Western abstract painting.
