Zheng Lu was born in 1978 in Chifeng, Inner Mongolia. He received a BA and MA from Lu Xun Academy of Fine Arts (Sculpture Department) and Central Academy of Fine Arts (Sculpture Department). In 2005, he won L.V.M.H. Young Artists’ Awards in France, and thus had the opportunity to study in Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts. Recent years has seen Zheng gradually setting up and improving his own logic and vocabulary in art on the basis of practice and experiment. Substances, scripts, water, time, space, and a number of concepts are included into his aesthetic world to form an organic whole, from which derives his unique renderings. In the meanwhile, his works are also metaphoric of the diversity and the possibility of life, as well as of our response to the relation between nature, the self, and the ego.
