Zhang Xiaodong   张晓栋
(b. 1981 in Hebei Province, China)

Zhang Xiaodong is the inheritor of intangible cultural heritage – Dragon-Scale Binding. The Dragon Scale Binding, which derives its name from the scale like appearance the pages have when it is opened, disappeared from the world since Tang Dynasty. The most recent surviving book of dragon scale binding is《唐人刊谬补缺切 韵》, a 1,000-year-old report by Wang Renxu (王仁煦), handcopied by his wife and master calligrapher Wu Cailuan (吳彩鸞) housed as private collection at the National Palace Museum in Beijing.

In 2010 Zhang Xiaodong brought back the lost art form in life with dragon scale binding “Diamond Sutra”. Now Zhang lives and works in Beijing.

Has been with Sin Sin Fine Art since 2017.
