Leng Hong

Leng Hong

Born: 1955

Hometown: Shanghai

Based in: Canada

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 Shanghai, China and Montreal, Canada, and is an adjunct professor in the Department of Fine Arts at Shanghai University.

Alisan Fine Arts first showed his works in the landmark exhibition "A State of Transition: Contemporary Paintings from Shanghai" at the Hong Kong Arts Centre in 1987. That same year, he was awarded the Grand Prize “Nouveau Talent” of the Federation Nationale de la Culture Française. Since then the gallery has held five solo shows for the artist. In the catalogue accompanying the gallery’s 1994 exhibition for Leng, Sophie Orloff wrote, “Leng Hong is a painter of departures. Joyful departures swollen with hopes, vibrant with enthusiasm, at the idea of what is to be found; departures loaded with memories and nostalgia of what is left behind. And always, this dream of an elsewhere.”

He has had numerous exhibitions, including at the Musée des Beaux-arts de Bordeaux, France; Musée de Pau, France; Chateau d'Issan, France; National Art Museum of China, Beijing; Shanghai Art Museum. Recently his artwork was featured on French Television, broadcast on FR3, and Shanghai Television. His works have been collected by Suzhou Museum; Liu Haisu Art Museum, Shanghai; Yangzhou Museum; Zhenjiang Museum; Changzhou Museum; Shanghai China Art Academy.
