"I've learned to turn myself into a 'thermometer' of life," he says.

The artists' community in Jiangxinzhou and the island's natural scenery have attracted the attention of outsiders including Yin Er, a Shanghai-based designer and filmmaker.

He made a film on life on the island and cast Zhang in a lead role-a painter and a house agent (in spare time) who meditates between villagers and migrants in Jiangxinzhou.

"Zhang's work boasts graceful smoothness in texture, a feature that is easy to describe but difficult of find," Yin says, comparing the art to jade.
