Artist of the moment…..Lu Peng

Lu Peng is a Chinese artist born in Beijing, China in  the year 1967. For his artistic education Lu Peng attended the Beijing Teachers Training College for his bachelor degree. He went on to earn a master’s degree from the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, China.  As far as a style of painting  Lu Peng is both a Surrealist and a Pop Artist. His large scale canvas work combines the figure with popular flowers of China.

One well received series dealt with the night life of Beijing, China. Again, many other Chinese artists have worked with this genre but Lu Peng enjoyed it because during this time people really become them selves when the sun goes down.

For his mediums Lu Peng works often with watercolor or ink on paper.

As with many Contemporary Chinese painters Lu Peng enjoys tackling the many changes taking place in the Chinese society. Similar to other artists who have worked with the theme of commercialism rather than Communism.

price range information: Works range from $30,000 to $70,000.

Here we see the artist working live!

In this clip we see the artist’s famed character Qoobee. He is the creator of the idea and the founder of the company.

And here a link to the facebook page for QooBee.

What a wide range of output by the artist. Exciting and dynamic line work of the modern comic strip style, or the wonderful blended color and lovely fauna painted by Peng in his more realistic works.
