Hong Ling, one of China’s most revered landscape painters is to unveil his first UK exhibition, Hong Ling: Contemporary Chinese Landscape, at Asia House, as part of the Asian Art in London 2012.
Hong Ling’s work is magnificent and has given us all great pleasure. I hope to see more of his work showing in the UK.

“The concept of landscape painting in the East and West is rather different in my view. My aim is to convey the Chinese aesthetics of the universe – ‘my mind is the universe; the universe is my mind’ – through oil painting, a medium with its roots in the West.”
