About The Artist
Painting in what could be described as an "Old Master", almost Rembrandt style, Dongmin Lai demonstrates a mastery of brush work that is beautiful and spontaneous. Many of his works depicting life in rural China may appear almost medieval in its apparent lack of modernization. Born in 1959 in China, Dongmin received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Beijing Teacher's University, (Beijing Norm University) and studied at China's Academy of Fine Arts. in 1986 he became a member of the Chinese Fine Art Association and proceeded to hold several shows in the National Gallery and the Capitol Museum in Beijing. Two of his paintings were chosen for the Museum's permanent collection. In Oct. of 1991 he was awarded China's prestigious Silver medal for oil painting.
In the time Dongmin Lai has been in Canada his recognition has grown rapidly. He has been painting professionally for about twenty two years, the last eleven of which have been spent in Kelowna British Columbia. His work may be found in collections in China, Singapore, United States and Canada.
