Di-Li Feng

Di Li Feng, born 1958, is a Chinese contemporary artist working in the Western oil painting tradition.

In his work, he aims to combine the reality of a concrete object with the atmosphere created by an abstract texture and background. He has a particular admiration for the glories of China’s imperial past, which forms the basis for many of his paintings, and he declares that he is "enchanted by its honour or disgrace, its tragedies, sadness, sentimentality and great joys".
