Peng Lei / 彭磊

Peng Lei was born in 1976 in Beijing, and studied film and animation at the Beijing Film Academy but soon established a practice that encompasses music, film, art, and pop culture. He is perhaps best known as the co-founder and lead singer of Beijing indie band New Pants, and has directed several of their award-winning music videos. In 2006, he made his debut feature film Pekin Monster, followed by The Panda Candy in 2009, both of which have been selected for international festivals and competed at the China Independent Film Festival. Besides film and music, he is an active painter and sculptor and had his first solo show at Beijing’s Arario Gallery in 2007. New Pants are currently working on a new album.
