Her artworks are produced in a variety of media such as porcelain sculptures, embroideries, fine art prints and soft sculptures.
Born and raised in China and studying at The Royal College of Art in London, Ming Lu is now living in Berlin. Ming Lu has won the BBA Artist Prize in 2020 and is a new represented artist of the gallery. She works closely with small workshops in China to bring her ideas to life, humorously employing symbols and figures from myths, legends, prehistorical culture, and from her own biography. Ming Lu’s works reflect her cultural identity, which combines an enduring attachment to China, the country of her birth, to that of a growing relationship with her new home of Europe.
Ming Lu’s metaphorical use of everyday objects is a typical approach for the artist; her works often veer between abstraction and literalness, the familiar and the uncanny, the absurdity and gravity.
