Historical Context:
Zhang Hong Xun first began print making in 1979, and in 1981 worked as the art editor of the periodical "Reclamation Daily" in Jiamusi in Northeast China. He graduated from the Beijing National University's Fine Art Department in China as a print maker and painter, and is currently the director of the Great Northern Wilderness Printmaking Institute in China, and also serves as the deputy vice chairman of the Great Northern Wilderness Fine Art Artists' Association. On art, Xun states: "Art creation is a beautiful life. Life and creation are just like form and shadow- they cannot be separated. I believe that a noble character is the basis of art creation. It is my goal to translate my love of humankind, of life, and the world into my work".
