“I believe what makes us human is our inner qualities,” says Stephen Zhang. “Without spirit and emotion, a portrait is merely a depiction of an object. My observation is that human emotions are endlessly rich, and seldom one-dimensional. Paintings should be able to convey these complex emotions and inspire empathy. I prefer to paint people while they are in the moment and absorbed in their actions.”
