Tang Contemporary Bangkok is proud to announce the opening of The Stranger, a solo exhibition by Zhang Yongxu, on November 16.

His paintings depict enchanting urban night scenes, village buildings with folk touches, and worried or happy figures. Zhang uses particular lighting and distortions to construct a distinct painting language. As fragments of memory, the scenes are given a freshness, allowing real and surreal painting methods to coexist. The paintings very easily arouse emotion in the viewer, linking the artist’s spiritual world and our individual memories.
