Leng Jun is a Chinese contemporary artist best known for paintings and drawings that appear like photographs. Born in 1963 in Sichuan, he was influenced by the period of economic shift known as the “opening of China” that occurred while he was coming of age. As China opened, information coming in from the West helped him develop as a painter. “For people like me who were born around the 1960s, we were teenagers at the time when we formed our worldview. That was a great opportunity. Looking back, reform and opening-up really saved the soul of our generation,” Jun said. The artist currently lives and works in Beijing.
