Biography from Kingsley Art Auction:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Chen Zhi-Guang was born in Fujian, China, in 1963, and graduated from Fujian Normal University in 1988.  He is renowned for making sculptures of metal ants, using ants to be spokesperson of his art.  To take a closer look, these metal ants not only have shining and skinny surface, but also possess biological features which include disguises of ancient or modern people.

There are two groups of personified ant sculptures, one is those with undistinguished genders and with diversified outfits, and another group is those small, realistic ants.  Through Chen Zhi-Guang’s idea, those stainless steel is like been fused with real life.  He once expressed that when he discovered ants from artistic angle and interpreted into his own artistic language, it doesn’t really matter about ants anymore, but the upcoming discussion.
