The haunting portraits of Zhang Hui

Eli Klein Fine Art Gallery in Soho is exhibiting Zhang Hui’s first showing in New York. The Beijing painter, Zhang Hui, is known for her portraitures of young girls with scars on their faces and guns in their hands. She pairs innocence with violence in a cartoon-esque style, making her work dark and disturbing, yet still capturing the brighter side of the darkness. Hui explains: ‘I live in Beijing. I’m a little kid. I want to become more beautiful and more fashionable. I want to have beautiful dresses. I want to have cotton candy. I want to be happy. Do you want to go back to being a child? My goal is to simply accept anger and sadness, while enjoying the happiness in my life’.
