You are watching Art Introduction - Remembering by Ren Zhen Yu

Chinese artist Ren Zhen Yu introduces his new portrait of Singapore's founding father, Lee Kuan Yew, that will be arriving at Ode To Art very soon! In his works, Ren uses colours to create a unique expressionist interpretation of famous faces and experiments with texture built on layering to reinforce the portrayal of faces from different perspectives. He adopts a manner closer to Pop Art than to the currently dominant Chinese Neo-Realist style. Ren infuses contemporary perspective together with the history and memories attached to these historic icons, making their reminiscing evergreen.
