Pao-Leng Kung


I am from Taiwan and currently based in London where I study painting at the Royal College of Art.  I started creating my works at a very young age but sometimes I am not sure if I can be an "artist". The only thing that I am sure of is that I enjoy every moment within my working process.

  • Achievements & Goals

    • To be honest, I still think that everything is just at a starting point
  • Genre & Style

    • I would define my works as total abstraction
    • I'm constantly thinking about the space inside and outside the canvas. But I think sometimes I see my works as objects or installations
    • feel like I am seeking for a space hard to be located within my works
  • Inspiration & Vision

    • Everything, from daily life to art exhibitions
    • I hope that I can share my works with more people
    • At the same time, I always want to be passionate and confident in developing my works
    • The most important at this moment is having my own studio space
  • Sales & Trajectory

    • Already sold works at art fairs in Taiwan
  • Technique & Material

    • Acrylic paint
    • I still experiment with different materials for the surface and texture of my paintings
