Lumli Lumlong 淋漓淋浪

Duo artists revealing social realities through "terrifying" grotesque style oil paintings


Born into working-class families, Lumli Lumlong studied fine art together in France for 5 years with very limited financial means. Most of their artwork, which have been exhibited and collected by individuals in Hong Kong, London, Paris, Berlin, Prague, Dublin, Sydney, New York, Geneva, Slovenia and Glasgow, is mostly oil-painting in a grotesque style with a shared aim, revealing social realities. They have published their collection of artwork entitled “Liberation of Art” and “The Hong Kong Metamorphosis”. Under the rule of China, they were repeatedly criticized by the pro-Chinese Communist Party media for allegedly violating the National Security Law and using art to promote Hong Kong independence. “Liberation of Art” was then listed as a banned book. In 2021, they fled Hong Kong to the UK. Despite being suppressed, the couple still hope to use their works to contribute to their beloved hometown, Hong Kong.

In addition to their artistic creations, they spent the next fifteen years teaching painting after returning to Hong Kong from France. They established their own art studio, teaching mainstream students, students with autism, sponsored students and rehabilitated youths and more. They were lecturers of oil-painting at the School of Continuing and Professional Studies, The Chinese University of Hong Kong.

According to Lumli Lumlong, social reality can be more “terrifying” than their artistic creations and compassion is the ultimate expression of one’s imagination.
