Fortnum’s X Zhang Enli

  • Tue 10 September – Fri 18 October 2019

This September, Fortnum & Mason launches Fortnum’s X Zhang Enli. This collaboration with the eminent Chinese artist will see a rich body of works take over the flagship London store, including 19 never-before-seen paintings specially commissioned for Fortnum’s and a 6-metre site-specific work. Regarded as one of the 21st century’s most celebrated artists, Shanghai-based Zhang Enli is known for his captivating paintings that document the more prosaic aspects of contemporary life. Having achieved acclaim for his earlier figurative paintings, Zhang Enli has dedicated recent years to developing his own abstract visual language. In his latest body of work, commissioned specifically by Fortnum’s with the space in mind, Zhang Enli’s uninhibited, intuitive approach to colour and form is exemplified throughout the space. Inspired by the artist’s increased travel to and across the UK over the past year, these works harness themes of travel, mapping, immigration and relocation.
