Current exhibition at the Airport Club Frankfurt- Ren Rong
Ren Rong is one of the world’s best known contemporary Chinese artists.
His career has been impressive and noteworthy. Rong’s works regularly feature in international art fairs and have been exhibited in many museums and prestigious galleries.
Rong first gained international fame through his »plant man« series. These abstract, concrete hybrids – whether sculpted in steel or iron, covered in glossy paint or crumbly rust, cut out of wood or paper, painted in watercolour or oil, or shaped into wax models or lacquer works – convey various statements about the human condition.
His oeuvre also includes expressive personal pictures of well-known politicians such as Mao Zedong. Ren Rong was born in 1960 in Nanjing, the capital of the province of Jiangsu. He lives and works in Bonn and Beijing.
