Greetings! Galerie Koo is delighted to present LU Jun’s first solo exhibition in Hong Kong!
This exhibition features a series of LU’s contemporary ‘Digital Ink’ paintings on both silk and fine art paper. Please take a view on LU Jun’s TED x Talks https://youtu.be/EzpX_SPxtuQ to uncover the artistic notions and inspiration behind his Digital Ink paintings.
Lu Jun (b.1962)was born in Hu Bei, he graduated from Wuhan University of Technology in 1983. Lu showed his affection in photography when he was a university student, and by as early as 1991, his works were selected and exhibited at the 3rd Shanghai International Photography Exchange Exhibition in Shanghai, China.
In 2005, 2006 & 2009, Lu won the outstanding photographer awards at the Pingyao International Photography. Lu won the Photography Gold medal (2009), the Sculpture Bronze medal (2013), and the Digital Art Silver Prize (2015) on the 7th, 9th and 10th X Biennale di Firenze accordingly.
Lu is the founder of “Digital Ink” painting and started exploring his digital ink art by 2007; and by 2009, Lu dedicated his whole self to art and venture his journey as a Contemporary Chinese Ink artist.
Lu fuses his knowledge in Chinese ink paintings with his photography specialties and his distinct artistic interpretations, this allows him to perfectly capture and present his highlighted novelty fantasies with an abstract and contemporary artistic expression… with the moments where the ink and colors interacted with the water… just like any traditional Chinese ink painting. Lu was honored as one of the World’s top 100 artists—Creative Genius: 100 Contemporary Artists (2009), by Masters of Today Limited in London, England.
His works are collected by Museums: Thai National Gallery, Macao Museum of Art, Zhuhai Museum, Shenzhen Art Museum, Guyuan Museum of ART; international corporations: HSBC, Waldorf Astoria Hotels, Fairmont Hotels and Resorts, Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts, Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts, Sheraton Hotels & Resorts, and international private collectors.
