I love this artwork by Fu Wong. Its ink and oil and I think the detail is amazing, the shadow like background makes this piece very interersting and the detail on the clothing is fabulous.

Born in China in 1946 and graduating from the China Arts & Crafts Academy, Beijing, Fu arrived in Australia in 1990, and gained a reputation for his original synthesis of representational painting with “impressionist” and “expressionist” leanings. His impressive achievements include: finalist 2008 Archibald Prize; winner Best Portrait 2006 Lexus Mortimore Prize; 2006 Archibald Prize Salon des Refuses; and winner of the 2002 Shirley Hannan National Portrait Award.

Current exhibition of this and other works here
