Lou Xiang's (pronounced Lu Zhang) skill with brush stroke and playful sense of humour has resulted in a new offering of vibrantly coloured figurative abstracts in acrylics and ink.

Lou Xiang’s (pronounced Lu Zhang) skill with brush stroke and playful sense of humour has resulted in a new offering of vibrantly coloured figurative abstracts in acrylics and ink.

His subjects interact with cellos, umbrellas, teapots or birds or passively float in a boat; all so gentle and whimsical that they trigger a relaxation response in the viewer to simply just ‘be’ in a meditative way.

Born in Shanghai, he has developed a unique style from Chinese ink stroke to Western abstract expressionism since his arrival here from China in the late 1980’s, where some of his early years were spent painting bright propaganda art murals for Mao Tse Tung. These works are softer and gentler, and owe more to the poetry of traditional brush painting.
