Born in Nanchang City, Jiangxi Province. After graduated with MA from the Oil Painting Department, Central Academy of Fine Art, currently Luo Qing is teaching at the Academy of Chinese Traditional Opera in Beijing. He is renowned for his landscapes and portraits of contemporary China. He captures scenes and images of everyday life that people often take for granted or dismiss. His "Ruins" series sees him taking on the subject matter or rubble and trash. Predominantly painted in a monochromatic palette, these landscapes are a stark contrast to conventional, pastoral landscapes. Yet, they are beautiful too. These ruins are a result of construction and reconstruction that is taking place all throughout China now. Buildings get torn down today, and are forgotten tomorrow. By taking a snapshot of this, Luo Qing is keeping these memories for posterity.
