About The Artist
Born in Chengdu, China, Mr. Ren Jianhui graduated from the Art Academy of Qing Hua University, and his teacher was the art master Mr.Wu Guanzhong. Selected as one of the “ATIM Top 60 Masters” of International Contemporary Arts in 2013 by the USA, Canada, and Italy, he became the first Southeast Asian artist to get this nomination. A former teacher at the National University of Singapore, he is the president of the Artists Society of Singapore (2002 till present) and a member of the China Artists Association.
After exploring different styles and various media in his artistic career for over two decades, he settled with his current expressive method. Ren shows new-found energy in modern oil painting through semi-realism, which includes modernity and primitivism. And by his unique methods of processing the paint, he has mastered the optimum way to treat background and foreground separately on the canvas
while producing a perfectly complementary effect.
