Lu Song (1982, Beijing, China) is an artist based in Beijing. Graduated in 2006 from the Wimbledon College of Art London, he has exhibited all over the world since then with shows in Berlin, New York, London, Copenhagen, Sao Paulo in Brazil. Lu’s painting is characteristically 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.
He has exhibited all over the world with solo exhibitions in Hong Kong, Berlin, Sidney, Beijing. He exhibited with Interni romani, at the Mattatoio in Roma (2018) and with an important retrospective titled Flow at the OCAT Museum in Xi’an, China (2017).
