Step into Zhang Yunyao's temporary studio in Paris and see how the city has shaped his artistic journey, leading to a new body of works created during the time of Covid-19 and his first solo exhibition in Europe at Galerie Marguo.
Western classic sculpture has served as a link between my focus on image generation and hand drawing, which has become a key theme of my 'felt drawings' over the years.
2020 is a special year for everyone. I actually feel fortunate that I’m experiencing this time as an artist.
— Zhang Yunyao
