Xiang Zhang

Born in the year of the Horse, Xiang Zhang (pronounced Shong Zang) grew up in China. After graduating from The Central Academy of Drama in Beijing, where he was strongly influenced by the 19th century Russian masters, he received his Master Degree in Fine Art from Tulane University in New Orleans. And upon moving to Texas, Zhang combined his love for painting horses and portraiture to develop his special style of western art. Zhang is the Associate Living Master of Art Renewal Center in American. 

Dedicating time to observing working ranches, Zhang's work reflects the symbiotic relationship between the cowboy and his horse. Using scintillating colors and bravura brushwork to capture the drama of ranching life, his definitive style has catapulted him to new heights in the art world.

Xiang’s work has been exhibited in prestigious national shows such as Prix de West in Oklahoma City, The Briscoe Western Art Museum's Night of Artists, and Autry National Center's Masters of the American West Fine Art Exhibition and Sale. He has had numerous successful one-man shows and his work has been featured in Western Traditions: Contemporary Artists of the American West, Art of the West, Southwest Art, Western Art Collector, Fine Art Connoisseur, and numerous other publications. He currently resides in Dallas, Texas with his wife Lily.

Xiang Zhang is represented by Southwest Gallery in Dallas, Texas and Mclarry Fine Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico
