    I’d like to also add that this guy, as well as being in top form, is also extremely kind and done to earth. His figure drawing sessions at Space when I was in school were the best in town. Prettiest and craziest (and interesting) models in town. Word up Lu Cong!

      ^ great to hear this sort of thing – i am always half nervous when i meet someone whose work i love, because if they are an ass then i will have a harder time liking their work

        Def. can relate to that. Nothin’ but love for Lu Cong + his work. He puts in the hours. He stays humble. If only we were all (myself included) a little more like ’em.

    Amazing paintings! The style softly reminds me of the Dutch artist; Charley Toorop.
    And her style later in her career of doing portrets.

    looks like he had some classical training. something about their eyes, i guess.

      I hate to speak for him, but I think he’s self-taught. Went to school for something completely different and just started doing this on the side;
