About Artist ：Zhu Hong 朱宏
Born in Dalian, China, Zhu Hong has been living in Singapore since 1997 and is currently a Singapore citizen. He holds a degree in Architecture, and had previously worked in interior design, architectural design and event design before turning to art full-time in 2011. At the moment, he also serves as an adjunct faculty lecturer at Ngee Ann Polytechnic where he teaches visual art to tertiary students enrolled in high-tech media studies. As an artist, Zhu Hong is actively involved in the local arts scene. Apart from being a member of the Singapore Watercolour Society, he also helps the committee for the Federation of Art Societies.
For Zhu Hong, painting offered an important source of mental and spiritual support, especially during his early years in Singapore. Alone and new in a foreign land, he would often spend his free time reading books in libraries or travelling around to explore the island.
In his watercolour art, 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 an unconventional and localised twist 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.
