One of my favourite sites, NOWNESS, has launched their Chinese language site. In conjunction, NOWNESS CN did an intimate interview with China’s powerhouse artist Zeng Fanzhi. I met the artist in 2007 when his solo exhibition was held in Singapore. He is a quiet man but his works speak volumes.
Filmed by Hong Kong-based filmmaker Ringo Tang, Zeng explains his obsession with calligraphy and lines. Chaotic lines is the title of the series he has been working on since 2005 and this interview offers a brief explanation on his inspiration and motivation behind his works and his craft. Catch a rare glimpse of the artist here.
