Klasično kinesko slikarstvo u svojoj najsnovitijoj verziji. Cvijeće viđeno ptičjim snovima.
Zhang’s paintings feature a lyrical scene like the one pictured in the classic poem “The Story of the Peach Blossom Valley” of Tao Yuanming. The lotus that he paints, blooms like a shy, blushed young girl with rosy cheeks and fair skin. The birds that he paints are lively like fairies, flying over flowers and trees. In such a peaceful, heavenly and dreamy environment depicted by Zhang, for a moment, we seem to forget about the chaos and griefs in our lives. Our hearts will be captured by this dreamy wonderland.
