Luc Tuymans (b. 1958, Belgium) is considered as one of the most influential contemporary painters and is widely credited with having contributed to the revival of painting in the 1990s. Titled Good Luck, the artist’s first solo exhibition in Greater China brings together a selection of recent paintings and an animated video that are drawn from a range of historical and contemporary images, with some referencing Chinese cultural legacy and cityscape.
