Zimo Zhao


Born in Beijing, China

Lives & works in San Francisco, CA


My work takes a critical view of social events which have happened in the world and have a profound impact on our contemporary social environment. Often referencing social violent events, online celebrity culture and female security problems. And I also make self portraits to explore and communicate with myself.
