Human's state of survival in this fast pace society has always been the pivot of Lu's work. In his work, references to classic materials of both the East and the West have been blended into fables about people's life nowadays. Lu once said, "I wish to use the classics with a contemporary attitude rather than invariably worship or simply imitate them. For me, the continuation of classics is a mode of appreciating the world, a mode that might seem clumsy but is undoubtedly reliable." Through exquisite rendering of the light and setting, he created scenes which look realistic while emotionally indescribable to bring out his queries about the contemporary life in China and beyond. In many of Lu's landscapes or interiors, the scenes are empty. However, traces of human activities can be sensed clearly in these spaces that hint at some unspoken stories.

Lu Liang was born in 1975 in Shanghai, China. He went to Beijing to pursue his artistic training in the Department of Murals in The Central Academy of Fine Arts, and graduated with B.A. and M.A. degrees in 1999 and 2005 respectively. L is currently a lecturer at The Central Academy of Fine Arts.
