A self- taught photographer, New York based artist Thomas Zhuang creates original works inspired by his travels, life in the city, and his roots in rural China. His photographs are surreal interpretations of the intersection between reality and fantasy, marked by his signature style of juxtaposing new and old. A blurred focus creates a dreamlike quality, emphasized by the integration of surface reflection and atmosphere. In addition to Thomas’s photography, he is also a skilled painter, drawer, and practitioner of the decorative arts. Thomas is currently an artisan at Alpha Workshops, creating unique, hand-crafted wallpapers.
