Lu Chao

Born in 1988 in Shenyang, Lu Chao is a graduate of the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing and of Royal College of Art in London. He now lives and works in London. Lu Chao’ s oil paintings use a subtle technique to prompt a profound feeling of mystery and imagination. Extensively detailed and relying on a traditional Chinese black and white aesthetic, they usually centre on themes of melancholy, of the link between man and nature, and individuality and recognition. His works have been widely exhibited in galleries and institutions in China and abroad, including at Hadrien de Montferrand Gallery in Beijing, Galerie Nathalie Obadia in Paris, MOCA Shanghai, in the Museum of Contemporary Art Chengdu and the Today Art Museum.
