Lin Hai Rong

Chinese,b. 1975


Born in Heilongiiang in 1975, Lin Hai Rong graduated from Fine Arts Department of Henan Normal University. She later gained a post graduate degree from Sichuan Fine Arts lnsti­tute. As a winner of the prize for excellence in the Dragonair Emerging Artist Awards, Lin Hairong has continuously earned international attention. Lin Hairong's paintings por­tray a profound sense of peace. She especially manages well the compositions in her paintings in order to create the serenity and harmony of life. Most of Lin Hairong's works are based on flat painting, depicted in subdued tone. Lin is fond of creating a hazy mood and very often both the char­acters and the backgrounds are painted with great details­so soft, feminine and delicate. Her paintings are often shown in a variety of poses with influences from cultural­revolutionary image and other Chinese and western histori­cal sources. Lin's world is full of gentle humour, her playful­ness and energy is revealed through her child-like figures with their distinctive small and slanted eyes. 

I am the worst commentator on my own paintings. Painting is a part of my life or at the very least an emotional outlet. Life, hobbies, recreations, friends, old memories...Things that I see, feel, miss, and hope for are the inspiration of my paintings.

Lin Hairong is a young and recognized female artist with great potentials, known for painting Chinese women in a simple background. We particularly appreciate her precise use of lines and colours. 

Lin Hairong is the award-winner for excel­lence in the Dragonair Emerging Artist Awards in 2006. Has an auction record price of HK$2 l l,200 for Das Schweigen in 2008. 


Lin Hairong's artworks have been exhib­ited internationally which includes Hong Kong, Belgium, Zurich... and many major cities

within China like Shanghai, Beijing, Chengdu, Liaoning,

Nanjing, Chong­qing. 


Has had exposure at major art fairs, such as Scope Art Fair in

New York, Arts & An­tiques Fair in Brussels and Art HK.
