1963

Zhang Dali was born in january, in Harbin, Heilongjiang province, in northeast China.

   

1987

He graduated from the National Aademy of Arts & Design, Beijing.

   

1989

He moved to Italy, in Bologna where he discovered the art of graffiti.

   

1995

When he came back, he travelled across Beijing and sprayed giant profile of himself,

 

on all ruined buildings slated for demolition.

 

Some are marked AK- 47 in reference to the Russsian machine gun, symbol of violence.

   

2005

Used as pattern in his series of portraits of workers seeking for a job,

 

AK- 47 was used to show their vulnerability.

   

2003/2005

In Chinese Offspring, he symbolized, in resin, 100 migrant workers,

 

hanged upside down to indiate their inability to change their destiny.

   

2005/2010

In  The second Story, the artist highlighted the rigging in photography,

 

by propaganda in China, confronting the official pictures retouched

 

and the original of 1950-1970.

   
 

He lives and works in Beijing, China.
