For three decades, C. Meng has employed his superb draftsmanship and facile hand to convey with simple lines, notations and scenes from his daily life and travels. From his native China to Parisian cafes and the wooded areas of New England, Meng’s elegant genre paintings have shown a by-standers glimpse into everyday life. His newest series of drawings, Occupiers, depicts the many and varied inhabitants of the Occupy New York camp which was operational in the 2011 as a physical location in New York's Financial District.
C. Meng has exhibited his paintings internationally as well as in the U.S., including: 420 W. Broadway Art Space, New York, NY; The Monster Show, Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami, FL; Fairfield University, Fairfield, CN and the Osaka Triennial, Public Exhibit Space, Osaka, Japan.
