Lun Lunzen's Bio

Lunzen Originals Lunzen Home Lunzen Price Guide

LUNZEN's painting are meditations on harmony- visually, musically, spiritually, and interpersonal. His graceful, opulently colored works - while modern - reflect his Oriental heritage in their lush colour palette and serenely centered images.

Born in Johore, Malaysia, LUNZEN began painting at the age of eight. He is primarily self-taught, having sold his first painting in Malaysia at the age of thirteen. That auspicious beginning encouraged such a passion for painting that he continues to paint every day.

Not content to rely solely on his intuition, he has studied Fine Art at Hong Kong Academy of Art, Kansas University, and the San Francisco Academy of Art. Art lovers around the world are celebrating his increasing stature as a major multi-media artist.

In 1983, LUNZEN took first place in the Malaysia national Arts Competition. In 1988, he won both first and second place at Emerald City Classic in Kansas out of 650 participants. Since then, he has received numerous other national and international awards. LUNZEN's works are in the permanent collections of international art collectors such as privates and individuals, museum, galleries, and corporations. He has exhibited in group and solo shows throughout Asia, Europe, Canada and United States, and has been published extensively in art periodicals.

LUNZEN paints to music, and asserts: "Music is often a catalyst in unlocking my emotions and allowing my imagination a certain freedom." The viewer can appreciate LUNZEN's imaginings on several levels. There is his fearless, Matisse-like use of color; bright, bold, and compelling. There are the flowing, curving lines; disciplined, yet sensuous. There are the tranquil faces, some with closed eyes looking inward, some gazing directly, yet innocently, at the viewer. Interesting, too, is the recurring motif of strong, directional light cast on the faces, such that half of the face is featureless, save for the corner of the mouth. It is as if LUNZEN is leading the viewer ever deeper into his soul.

LUNZEN's art is never ponderous, however. It is delightfully witty. Bright red lips on the palest of faces kiss the viewer's eyes. Having playfully gotten the viewer's attention. LUNZEN draws them through swirling, luscious arcs of delicious color. His goal, he says, is "…to give the viewer a feeling of harmony and happiness. People are looking for a peaceful life. We know life is short, and through my imagination, I feel and express what I have in my mind." Since life is short, and often harried, what a treat it is to have bright, red lips entice us into the calm, pleasure-filled, and always surprising world of LUNZEN's imagination!
