KASING LUNG



KASING LUNG

Hong Kong | B. 1972

Known for his bunny-eared character Labubu, Kasing Lung is a celebrated illustrator who gave life to countless characters under his pen and brush. His artistic oeuvre is strongly influenced by Nordic folklores and myths, creating a magical realm where Labubu and his companions roam freely, where the fantastal resides.

Since 2011, Kasing has been publishing illustrated books along with a series of collectable figures. In 2013, his first Chinese language ill illustrated book, My Little Planet, was published in Taiwan. The following year, he was invited by the publisher De Eenhoorn to collaborate with the renowned Belgian storybook author Brigitte Minne for a children’s illustrated book Lizzy Wil Dansen. His illustrations were well received by audiences worldwide, which helped Kasing gain a following across the globe. In recent years, Kasing has been switching his focus on painting and his works are met with immense popularity.

Born in Hong Kong, Kasing moved to the Netherlands with his family as a child. Kasing now lives and works between Hong Kong and Belgium. In 2020, he held his first solo exhibition This Is What It Feels Like at Hidari Zingaro, a gallery in Tokyo under the care of one of the giants in the contemporary art scene, Takashi Murakami.
