Hong Kong Renowned Oil Painters in the Diverse World
Installation art is increasingly popular throughout the art world and ink painting dominates the art scene in Hong Kong. However, oil painting has never been toppled. The upcoming exhibition features 40 oil paintings by 10 artists who are the forerunners of oil painting in Hong Kong. All aged above 70, these artists include Chu Ying Tung, Lin Ming Chen, Tsui Chee Kui Joseph, Chan Siu Min, Chan Chiu Lung, Wong Pui Kong, Au Yeung Nai Chim, Shaw Tze, Chung Yiu and Kwong Ko Wah. Despite their different artistic styles, their paintings interestingly depict a world full of colours and wonders, reflecting the experience of life of the old generation.
