Zhen Hua Lei
Lei Zhen Hua was born in Xi’an, China in December 1961. He was enlisted into the army in 1979, and studied in the Xi’an Fine Arts Institute in 1983 under Professor Guoyong Chen. He currently lives in Shanghai as a professional painter. Other than oil paintings, Lei had also been making art with photography and printmaking.

Lei believes that abstract painting comes from living. One has to build a solid foundation and transcend into in-depth thinking. He quoted from the well-know French Neoclassical painter, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres biography, “Art is an in depth thinking and honorable passion.”
