Zeng Hao is a gifted young painter with a deep love for ancient Chinese culture. He uses mainly classical western oil painting techniques to create his large works of art. Born in the city Zigong of Sichuan province, Zeng Hao first developed an interest in painting under the influence of his artist father and later attended the Sichuan Art College.
When Zeng Hao first visited Dunhuang, an ancient and once important city whose name means ‘brilliant and magnificent’, to observe and study Dunhuang art he was amazed and inspired by the beauty and splendour of the art in the Mogao Cave. Dunhuang is along the Silk Road which once linked the East and West, and through his love of Dunhuang Art, Zeng Hao has fused classic western and eastern ideals of beauty in the images and Goddesses he creates. Zeng Hao talks about a tranquil, peaceful and romantic paradise that exists deep in his heart and feels the Dunhuang Goddess is a real goddess that exists inside his heart – she is the embodiment of pure truth, goodness and beauty.
Zeng Hao is a member of the Dun Huang Creative Centre of Arts Association and his work is receiving great acclaim both in China and internationally.
