San Francisco based artist Michael Zheng was born and grew up in China. He studied Computer Science at Tsinghua University and worked as a computer software designer for ten years. Later he quit his job to attend the San Francisco Art Institute, where he studied with Paul Kos, Tony Labat and John Roloff. His work is conceptually based and often takes the form of situational intervention, sculpture or performance. He often creates situations that challenge the established positions so that a new perspective becomes possible. His recent projects have taken on various forms of social intervention for which he considers himself as a medium, or an enabler for certain experiences and perspectives.
