I am Hanyang Zhou, I was born in Xi An, China in 1978, and raised along the southern coast around Guang Zhou & Shen Zhen. Under one child policy with both parents working, books were my best friends and drawing became routine for life. I went to New Zealand to study art & design in age 20, and graduated from Auckland University of Technology in 2005. Many of my older works were signed under the name Michael. Currently I am living in Japan with my family. My creative style varies, the progress of art making is always full of experiments and exploration.
