À propos de l'artiste
Zhang Fuming is trained in the discipline of Printmaking and works with mediums largely of traditional origin. He favours the direct and physical nature of printing mediums in particularly relief wood carvings. Harnessing the direct, efficient means of black-white narratives to communicate with his viewers, he creates works reprising the role of social commentary and realism in a contemporary context.

Fuming’s utilisation of large woodblocks, combined with an immersive black-white engagement – usually achieved through both rubbing and printing – heightens the stark emotional quality of his images and generates for his narratives a sense of weight and melancholy.

Fuming’s creative impulse of creating bold, black and white large format woodblock prints is synonymous with his artistic inclination, which is heavily influenced by the social realism movement along with its application of woodblock prints. Fuming particularly appreciates the manual process of creating prints through rubbing. Like his subjects, these methods are in keeping with his preference for a direct and efficient form of visual communication marked by an economy of means.

Through his carvings, the artist hopes to inform by presenting objective narratives of daily life and encourages an investigation of the topics explored.

Venturing beyond the conventional practice of printmaking discipline of works on paper, Fuming embraces the materiality of wood blocks to better translate the expression and gestures of his carvings, creating a sense of tension and contrast from the seemingly brutish to create the desired image against the woodgrain.

Fuming is a recipient of the AAF Young Talent Programme 2014/2015 and presented his debut Solo exhibition entitled The Quest; The Exquisite Rice Bowl in Ion Arts Gallery, 2015. Other Solo Exhibitions he has presented includes Poised for Success (2016, AC43 Gallery), V. Atas (2019, Telok Ayer Arts Club) and Props and Poses (2022, AC43 Gallery).
Group exhibition he’s involved in includes Bon A Tirer (AC43 Gallery, Singapore, 2018), You don’t Need 100 Editions (Institute of Contemporary Arts, Singapore, 2018), Singapore Printmaking Festival (Singapore Art Week, Millennial Walk, 2017), The 21st Century Maritime Silk Road Art Week (Xiamen, Fujian Province, China, 2016), Presence and Distances (Flaneur Gallery, Singapore, 2015) and many more.
