Ping Kelly

I am a graduate of Yunnan College of Art in Kunming, where I also qualified as a teacher. Although my personal preference is for abstract painting in oils, I have recently added acrylics to my repertoire. Since taking up residence in The UK, I have further developed my skills as a portrait painter and collaborated with other local artists to create a banner depicting St Winefride, which now hangs in St Winefride’s School in Wibsey.

I also create water colours in the traditional style of my native China. However, I have recently deviated from the Chinese figurative style to experiment with abstract forms using traditional brush painting techniques.


More recently, from temporary studio space overlooking the Westfield Development site in Bradford’s Broadway, I painted the dramatic city centre landscape. Painting the site as it developed, at different times of the day and throughout the four seasons, I created a contemporaneous series of dramatic pictures marking the creation of a new and vibrant part of Bradford’s history.

I have featured in the local press as well as the November 2010 edition of Yorkshire Living magazine. I have exhibited my work at several venues throughout Yorkshire including the Art in the Garden exhibition in Sheffield, the Fabric Gallery in Bradford and in the Artists’ Open Show at Leeds City Gallery.
