About the artwork

In this work by Liu ZhengYong the form of a man is visible, who is depicted in a highly stylized manner, and whose form is defined by bold outlines that distinctly accentuate his presence. The man smiles towards the viewer, transfixing them with his enigmatic gaze. The background is an expressionist blend of warm and cool tones, that are applied to the canvas through quick brushstrokes, creating a stimulating sense of energy. Through this thought provoking work, Liu explores the nuanced equilibrium between happiness and sadness, life and death and confusion and enlightenment.

About the artist

Born in 1980 in Zhuzhou City, Hunan Province, China, Liu Zheng Hong graduated from Tianjin Academy of Fine Arts in 2004 with a major in oil painting. Armed with textured movement and a vivid sense of colour, Zheng Yong channels the most intrinsic of Chinese sensibilities into a distinctly western medium.
