The American Chinese newspaper American Times introduced his works in a special edition of the paper. In 2009, his calligraphy work Shaking the Heaven and Startling the Earth was turned into the largest stone engravings in history.

His works are collected by China National Museum, Capital Museum, Shanghai Archives, Dunhuang Gallery, the King Palace of Thailand, as well as many individual art collectors from around the world. Proceeds from the sale of Mr. Zhang's artwork at The Foundation Gallery will be donated to Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) New Orleans.
