CACHET Boutique Shanghai is proud to partner Llamart Gallery, a scross-cultural platform that offers a curated selection of International and Chinese artists, uniting East and West.
Created in 2011 in Hong Kong by a French and a Chinese , Llamart aims to establish new cultural bridges and to diffuse art into new locations. The bi-national partnership gives Llamart its singular identity and allows to encompass both the Western and the Eastern visual aesthetics and perspectives on art.
Zhang Tianjun was born in Shanghai and graduated from China Academy of Art in Hangzhou. He lived the typical life of his generation. We can still feel his youth in the hands of the painter.
Many of Zhang Tianjun's landscape painting series copies or borrows from ancient paintings. However, the artist adds his unique method of production when borrowing from traditional images by integrating traditional themes with a special layer of texture or background. The materials he uses are common canvas and paints. Since the very beginning of his creation process, he has been trying to find out how to use these materials and media to the fullest extent to achieve a particular effect. From the day his canvas and frames arrive at his studio, Zhang Tianjun becomes a craftsman, taking care of each step until the work is finished. To him, this is an extremely painstaking process bringing a total fullness sensation.
