Zheng was born in 1989 in Zhejiang, China and lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.  She received and MFA in Painting from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2016 and a BFA in painting from the University College of London, Slade School of Fine Art in 2014. 

Ping’s works on paper in oil stick feature elements of landscape and cosmology, bold lines, and geometric shapes that suggest portions of the human form.  She draws upon her childhood experiences in nature and her boundless, energetic spirit, while working from her studio in the city, noting, "Living in New York, it is not so green, but a day of dawn and night is splendid, the colour of sky is changing, city lights are everywhere at night and quite beautiful." 

Zheng’s works are included in the collections of JP Morgan Chase Bank, Fidelity Investments Corporate Art Collection, and the Cleveland Clinic Art Program.  Zheng’s exhibitions have been reviewed in Artforum, The New Yorker, and the Houston Chronicle.
