Tianqi Lu focuses on both modern life and history , his works usually begin with a specific idea describing the events he has witnessed, photos he has taken, or people he has met, and then transform them into live characters on canvas. In a way, his works resemble a production set where he acts as a director who collaborates with actors to play, record, or recreate a situation, various impressions, or the effects thereof. Lu was born in China, and earned his Beachelor Degree in Oil Painting at Beijing Central Academy of Fine Arts and M.F.A at School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University.
