Painter Zhang Cui Ying, has received numerous prizes and awards. Zhang’s painting Before Winter Sets In was awarded second place in the 1986 “National Poetry Based Painting Competition” organised by the “Literature and Painting Magazine”. The Artist painted a lady sitting next to the window in deep thought. When Zhang went to pick up the prize, everyone was shocked, they had expected the artist to be an old man and never guessed it would be a girl in her twenties!
Zhang Cui Ying’s works can be seen published in newspapers and magazines in China and overseas and are also part of the collection in the book “Shanghai’s Talented Middle Age and Youth Painters and Calligraphers”.
Zhang Cui Ying’s One Hundred Koalas is not only a mascot but a treasure to Australia; lively, agile, natural and innocent. This painting, over 5 meters long, has received an Award of Excellence in the Chinese Wash Paintings for the Gold Awards category of the First Asia and the Pacific Competition.
