Exhibition of works by Meng Huang opens at Kang Contemporary

BERLIN.- Kang Contemporary Gallery would like to draw your attention to their current exhibition "Striking Distance" by Meng Huang.

Meng Huang is an artist living in Berlin and Shanghai, who is especially known for his impactful, large-scale paintings, as well as a socially critical artist.

The works on display at Kang Contemporary include large-scale landscapes painted by Meng Huang in China and Northern Europe, as well as his signature water landscapes. To avoid painting turning into a safe, repetitive activity, Meng Huang paints outdoors on three to four-meter-high canvases attached to scaffolding. In the past, the artist painted exclusively landscapes in China, but this year marks an imminent change in Meng Huang's artistic output. For the first time, he no longer paints exclusively Chinese landscapes, but now also German and Austrian sceneries. While the lower level of the gallery shows Meng Huang's journey to overcome the mental distance between him and his new surroundings, the upper level offers an immersive experience into the emotional depths of cultural distance.

In his artistic work, but also beyond, Meng Huang has always been dedicated to research and education. He has never rested on a successful body of work. His creative work is characterized by his own resilience and integrity, which allow him to express his feelings, ideas, and desires sincerely. His quest for freedom and his deep concern about injustice shine through in his paintings and reveal themselves intuitively to the viewer. Meng Huangs works have been exhibited internationally, notably, in the Anren Biennale, Chengdu, China, BMW Foundation, Berlin, Mo Art Space, Xinmi, China, Hamburger Kunsthalle, Sammlung Sigg, and the Swiss National Museum, Zurich.

Since 2018, the Berlin-based gallery KANG Contemporary has been dedicated to promoting and supporting a diverse group of emerging, internationally established, as well as underrepresented artists.
