Zhu Hong

"I hope to communicate with the audience the true essence of the everyday familiarities in the Singapore landscapes through my imaginative lenses."

  • Born 1969 in Dalian, China

  • Relocated To Singapore, 1997

  • Graduated with Bachelor's degree in Architecture


Zhu Hong’s understanding of, and passion for city life and architecture are expressed through the way he captures the spirit and essence of a building and its immediate surroundings. Adopting askew lines and unique angles, the instinctive and playful distortions of architectural elements in his cityscapes and street scenes exhibit a distinctive and contemporary flavour. The colours employed are usually vibrant and arresting, and they reflect keenly the lively tropical atmosphere of our island. By injecting such unconventional and localised elements into what is supposedly one of the most traditional and timeless mediums in the Western art world, Zhu Hong paints like no other, and his works inspire us to observe familiar scenes and objects with fresh eyes.
