Zeng Fanzhi - Sky Series [2005] on Flickr.

Zeng Fanzhi (born 1964) is an artist whose name has become almost synonymous with Contemporary Chinese art. His famous masks, ubiquitous motifs that encompass a large portion of his oeuvre, are never amiss from any discussion concerning Contemporary Asian art. So far is his reach that countless museums across the globe have been home to exhibition after exhibition, retrospective after retrospective, in honour of his work. And yet, Zeng is an artist who does not cease to amaze, nor is he one who settles.
