My name is Zhenlian, I am an artist from China, in fact, Zhenlian is my pseudonym, it means " True Lotus' which is a symbol of Buddhist Religion. I am a disciple of Buddhist philosophy.
I am now retired from my teaching job, I devote all my time to painting . I enjoy painting as I enjoy a cup of tea or reading a poem, very relaxing.
I was graduated from Teachers'Training College as art teacher, but I have not had much formal training in painting, I am self taught. I like both oil paintings and Chinese paintings, In oil painting I like the colours for its richness, I use to cover my canvas with a profusion of colours in their dream-like imageries. In Chinese paintings, I like the effect of ink and water diffusing into papers and produce very unexpected results. All my paintings are not just simple reproductions of the real world, they are intergrations of the symbolic and the real.
