Forest Qing Zhang began paving the 21st Century Silk Art Road in 2002, when Forest and his family immigrated to Canada from Suzhou, China. In 2004, King Silk Art evolved out of Silk Arts growing local popularity. Our success in Canada brought us to a new location in 2006, California, US. Silk Art is now growing in popularity worldwide. We introduced Silk Art to Japan in 2007, to the UK in 2008, to the Middle East in 2009 and to Australia in 2011.
