Dongmin Lai is an accomplished Internationally renowned oil painter.  Painting in what could be described as an ‘Old Master, almost Rembrandt style, Dongmin demonstrates a mastery of brush work that is beautiful and spontaneous.  Many of his works depicting life in rural China may appear almost medieval in its apparent lack of modernization.  Born in 1959 in China, Dongmin received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Beijing Teacher’s University and studied at China’s Academy of Fine Arts.  Two of his paintings were choosen for the Museum of the Chinese Fine Art Association’s permanent collection

In the time Dongmin has been in Canada his recognition has grown rapidly.  His works may be found in collections in China, Singapore,

United States and Canada.

    I have a giclée of Mother and Child that I purchased at your gallery years ago. I am considering selling it and was wondering if you knew it`s current value and if you offer a service where I could sell it through your gallery?

    Thanks, Rob Rudrum
