Leng Hong is a celebrated Chinese-French artist acclaimed for his exquisitely textured oil paintings, imbued with rich colours, and 'mysterious' feelings. His oeuvre varies in subject matter, from landscape and still life scenes to portraits of ladies in waiting from the Tang and Song Dynasties. Born in 1955 Shanghai, he graduated from the Shanghai Institute of Theatre and Dramatic Arts in 1978. While at the institute he learned to paint in the Academic European tradition and became adept in perspective, chiaroscuro, modelling, and social realism. He also studied traditional Chinese brush and ink painting, and was particularly drawn to Tang and Northern Song landscape paintings. In 1986 after moving to Bordeaux, France, he began experimenting with different styles, seeking ways in which to draw aesthetic inspiration from both traditions. He currently resides in Montreal, Canada, and is an adjunct professor in the Department of Fine Arts at Shanghai University.
