We are saddened to share that China’s well-known Deaf sign language poet and VV artist Zhang Peng has passed away at the age of 45.

Founders and Directors of Deaffest Nikki Stratton and Marilyn Willrich had the privilege of witnessing his amazing work during their visit to China last year.

He was planning to perform at Deaffest 2019, his presence will be greatly missed.
