Pau Ling was awarded the Aon prize in the 2017 Lloyd’s Art Group Exhibition for her mastery across oil, pencil and charcoal. Her artistic journey began in Malaysia where she trained in Chinese Ink Painting and calligraphy from age 10 and had her first solo exhibition aged 13. Since then she has exhibited internationally. She is particularly interested in portraiture using oil and charcoal whilst incorporating oriental artistic sensibilities. Currently, she is producing a charitable series of “Pandemic Portraits” of Bank of England colleagues including Andrew Bailey. Her paintings will be featured permanently in the Bank’s Museum from 2021. Pau Ling was an actuary at XL Catlin.
