Mengmeng Zhang
Born 1997 in Jiangsu, China | Lives and works in London

Mengmeng Zhang paints moments of fantasy and the ephemerality of everyday life. Memory is a central theme for the artists, incorporating personal narratives into oil paintings that elicit fictitious stories surrounding Zhang’s life. Colour, energy and movement play an important role in the creation process, and the work is often distinguished by a directional flow of paint. She describes her paintings as truncated love songs, screenshots of a private video, or a recently deleted photograph that remains embedded in our mind.
