Vivien Zhang (b 1990, Beijing) is a London‐based artist who grew up in China, Kenya and Thailand. She received her MA in Painting from the Royal College of Art (London) after completing an undergraduate degree at the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL (London). Zhang’s work reflects the disjunctive experiences of a third‐culture citizen, and also explores the visuality and subjectivity of the digital native. Zhang’s paintings present a cultural and geographical fluidity that interrogates the palimpsest nature of contemporary culture, the casual appropriation of visual tropes, and the role of post‐production in making works of art today. Her work has been exhibited in group and solo shows internationally.
