Hennessy ushers in the festive season around Chinese New Year with artwork by ZHANG Enli, a Shanghai-based artist born in Jilin, China, in 1965.
One of China’s most important contemporary artists, ZHANG Enli works with everyday objects — a piece of string, a length of pipe, an electric wire, some marbles — magnifying them into unique, dreamlike compositions that mirror the world around us and reflect his love of nature.
Zhang Enli’s works have been featured in numerous major exhibitions, most recently “A Room That Can Move” at the Power Station of Art in Shanghai (2020). He has exhibited internationally at museums and galleries such as the Galleria Borghese in Rome (2019), Hauser & Wirth in New York (2018), and the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London (2013).
“While this painting may be different from traditional tiger-themed paintings, my hope is that people will intuitively recall the animal’s beauty and vitality. ‘Poetry and Wine Welcome the Tiger’ is about spirit and sense over appearances; about the force of transformation, even in the tiniest details .” ZHANG Enli
