Zheng De Long(b. 1976)
Zheng De Long, 2015-12, 2016, oil on canvas, 47″ x 39.5″
In 2015-12, Zheng uses his technical skills as a painter to depict a liquified figure that is typical of the artist’s style. He uses an expressive, swirling mixture of color and form to create a chilling, energetic portrait. His flowing lines and deliberate, controlled strokes are meant to construct a world of the id.
Zheng De Long was born in Chengdu, Sichuan Province. The artist never received a formal art education, instead opening his own art studio in the 1990s. He has exhibited steadily since then, and he has participated in exhibitions and major art fairs in Asia, Europe, and the United States. He currently lives and works in Chengdu.
