Lan Zhenghui, is a contemporary artist who is active in Beijing and Toronto, and is known for his monumental abstract-ink painting.
In 2013, during the Art Basel-Miami Beach, an international gathering of top artists from around the world, Lan was included in one of the influential art exhibitions, “28 CHINESE” the Rubell Family Collection, which is considered a barometer for Chinese contemporary art collectors. Lan was the only participant who works with ink.
He transmits the “strokes” of traditional Chinese calligraphy into the “structure” of modern painting, the “freehand” of traditional Chinese painting into the “expression” of modern painting.
Based on his good sense in visual arts, Ian has been invited to create works by several international companies for brands such as BMW, Kiton (top bespoke), OS, Schiesser. He is an honored guest for the art seminar held by Mephisto, as well, he is the assigned artist of Volkswagen Phaeton VIP club.
Returning to the colorful world is an important part in Lan’s recent exploration. He is researching the best way to control the basic visual factor in multi-element situations, which needs a unique understanding from artist, so that eternal visual value with beauty & harmony can be generated.
