Jun Leng is the leading figure of Chinese hyperrealism. He is a researcher of the School of Oil Painting at China National Academy of Painting, and a distinguished artist with an international reputation. He was also the President of Wuhan Art Academy, Chairman of the Hubei Federation of Literary and Art Circles.

Leng is a 1984 graduate of Wuhan Normal College. His honors include the 1993 Silver Art Award at the Chinese Oil Painting Exhibition, the 1994 Artwork Award at the Second Annual Chinese oil painting exhibition, the 1995 Golden Award at the Third Annual Chinese art exhibition and the 1999 Golden Prize in the ninth National Art Exhibition. He also participated in the “100 Years of Chinese Oil Painting” exhibition.

Jun Leng's paintings hold a very special place in Chinese art circles with its unique composition and masterful use of fine techniques. He is famous for hyperrealistic oil paintings; viewers are always overwhelmed by the incredible details that can stand up to any close-up examination, even with a magnifying glass. Objects are depicted with spectacular precision that often enthralls the crowds. Leng’s take on contemporary motifs and contents also provide full psychological tension for viewers. His techniques live up to his reputation as the No.1 master of the Chinese hyperrealism school.
