Han ZhongRen (born 1962) is establishing his name in Beijing as an important contemporary artist, with several of his works already acquired into the collections of various national art museums across China. One of Han's work in "Nature. City" series, is currently exhibiting in the main hall of the recently reopened National Museum of China.

In the series of abstract paintings by Han Zhongren, the artist conveys his emotions on the beauty of nature, life and vitality and its sharp contrast with the life as he knows it in Beijing, a place now far from the natural world, an amalgamation of concrete, pollution, and traffic as it embraces industrialism and economic expansion. The explosive use of colours and the strong, powerful brush strokes very much demonstrate Han’s strong feelings on the clash of the natural and unnatural.

Born in 1962, Han currently lives and works in Beijing.
