From the back streets of Shanghai to the exuberance of contemporary Australian culture, Chen examines, explores, questions and celebrates the transcultural identity of being an Australian artist with a proud Chinese heritage. Beginning with small sketches and paintings, Chen draws inspiration from everyday life, contemporary subjects and traditional Chinese symbols to blend the ancient themes of Chinese culture with a dynamic and ever-changing new world. Portraits, landscapes and animals are integral to traditional Chinese ink brush painting. Chen's interpretations combine a deep respect for the culture of his birthplace with the symbolism of our contemporary, rapidly evolving world.
Zhong's work has been widely collected in Australia, Japan, Hong Kong and China. Key institutional collections include, The Art Gallery of South Australia, Gold Coast City Art Gallery, Western Mining, Australia, Artbank, Sydney, F.H.Faulding and Co. Adelaide, Macquarie University, BHP and SBS.
