Artist Zhang Hongtu (1943-present)

Artist Zhang Hongtu was born in Pinglang, China. He studied in Beijing at the Central Academy of Arts and Crafts and is a co-founder of The Chinese United Overseas Artists Association. Well known for using unusual materials (i.e. MSG, soy sauce, corn, nails, etc.) in his paintings, Mr. Hongtu is also a sculptor and works with ceramics, digital imaging and other forms of artistic expression.

Mr. Hongtu moved to the United States in 1980 and first became famous in 1987 for his portrait of Chairman Mao painted on a Quaker Oats cereal box. A “Political Pop” artist, he painted portraits of Buddha and others during the 1990’s. While initially using acrylics, during the late 1990’s Mr. Hongtu began painting with oils.
