Born in Manchuria in 1964, Zhao began painting as a child,
studied and taught in China until, in his late twenties, he
became enamored with the Western European artistic
tradition. Rejecting the social realism that dominated the
art of late twentieth-century China, Zhao emigrated to
Germany where he immersed himself in the styles and
techniques of such painters as Rubens, Boucher, Goya,
Courbet, and the Pre-Raphaelites. Color illustrations of his
hypnotic, phantasmagoric, and often satirical works are
reproduced in stunning clarity in this book along with
insightful commentary that reveals why Zhao is one of the
most fascinating artists to emerge from contemporary
China.
