Ren Rong (born 1960) studied at the Art Academy in his home town of Nanjing from 1982-1986. From 1989-1992, he studied at the Muenster and Dusseldorf Art Academies; in 1993, he received a year-long fellowship from the cultural ministry of Schleswig-Holstein and was awarded the Weilburger Prize for painting the following year. He now divides his time between Beijing and Bonn, Germany.
Ren's characteristic figures sport long, lithe limbs, flower-like heads, occasionally bulging breasts, and always a sinuous flexibility, the graphic clarity of their figural construction may remind Western viewers of the cutouts of Matisse, but the ancient tradition of Chinese paper cutting is a source of inspiration closer to home.
