Mengmeng Zhang was born in Jiangsu, China in 1997 and is currently based in London. After finishing her Bachelor’s Degree in Digital Media Design at China Academy of Art, she took on a journey in MA Fine Art Painting at Camberwell College of Arts and graduated in 2021.
Painting is Zhang’s main medium of expression. Most of her paintings depict ephemerality through personal memories and everyday life. Her inspiration usually comes from both personal and collective memories, texts or images, and with these elements. She likes to construct a fictitious picture of daily
life and explore subtle everyday moments when people get along. She describes her paintings are like truncated love-song lyrics, a screenshot of a private video, or a photograph that has been deleted on the phone but cannot be forgotten—everything is ambiguous and fleeting.
