Beijing based artist Lu Song will be showcasing his first solo exhibition titled Hinterland at Galerie Huit in Hong Kong. His works are greatly influenced by the Western masters especially from the 19th century German romanticism period. Lu Song has been nominated in Art & Auction Magazine in their “50 under 50- Next Most Collectable Artists”.
He paints surreal landscapes and urban scenes that are atmospheric and contemplative and addresses the co-existence of human and nature. Lu’s painting is recognisable by his use of well tempered sepia tone colours and application of tonal range that he applies with bold sweeping brush strokes. The result is a visual experience that draws the viewers into the scene, evoking a certain mood that is contemplative and surreal.
