Hong Bao was born in 1984 in the city of Shantou located in Guangdong Province, China. She obtained her BFA in 2008 from Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts and her MFA, from the same university, in 2011.
Hong’s artistic interest lies in ancient painting techniques such as mineral paintings and she perfected her skills in the research of coloured rock. Her aim is to fuse this ancient art with contemporary tastes. Her works are full of poetic modern fairy tales, illustrating the way she feels is her generation’s intersection of reality and fantasy. She is in search of freedom, wonder and exploring the realms of the imagination which she describes as a “peach garden” that could remind us of innocence.
