Hong Ying

Hong Ying was born at the tail end of the Great Leap Forward, so the Cultural Revolution dominated much of her formative years. At 18 she left home and spent the next decade moving around China, eventually landing in London for nearly a decade before returning to Beijing in 2000. Her work has won accolades worldwide, in particular K: The Art of Love. More recently she collaborated with illustrator Cherry Denman (also a Beijing resident) on the children’s book The Girl from the French Fort.
