About The Artwork

As the Title of the painting says it is all about COVID-19. Besides the reflection of the pandemic of COVID-19 in the world, it also has a hidden message of the political situation in Hong Kong behind the painting. One can see all facemasks with international flags to symbolise the people in the world are wearing the facemask to protect themselves from the pandemic of COVID-19. The whole painting is a bit blur with a window frame as if it is behind a window view to symbolize the lockdown of COVID-19 period, people can over see the world outside through windows. There is also a hidden political message in Hong Kong that there is no freedom of speech in Hong Kong. Even the black mask saying "Hong Kong Add Oil" in Chinese which is also forbidden in Hong Kong. I am just taking the risk of being locked up in jail with this painting too.

Born in Hong Kong. 1996 received BA in Fine Arts from the University of Hong Kong 1997 received MA in Design from Hong Kong Polytechnic University Specialize in sculpture, oil painting, Chinese painting and Chinese calligraphy in my own surrealistic style. Started drawing portraits by self-taught as early as I can remember at the age of 4 before I could even read or write. The first subject I drew was portraits of people. I was so fascinated to draw people, perhaps it is because the subject of "people" was the first thing I saw, being brought up in Hong Kong surrounded by people everywhere. I received my initial art training in traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy, before I went to The University of Hong Kong to study Fine Arts. I have found that my traditional Chinese art studies laid an important foundation for my art development later. Even though when I started oil painting and sculpture later, I could still apply the theories of Chinese art into other western media. For example, the brave decision of Chinese ink painting strokes encourages me to spread oil paints on canvas boldly without hesitation. On the other hand, the preciseness of every stroke I learnt from Chinese calligraphy can be applied to every cut I make the decision in marble sculpture I learnt in Italy later. One may not imagine that how Chinese calligraphy is linked to stone sculpture. In fact, their theories are the very similar. For instance: every stroke you make on calligraphy has to be so forceful and precise on paper, it parallels to every cut I make on marble sculpture. If you make a mistake on your decision, a wrong stroke on paper or a wrong cut on stone, there is no U-turn. Therefore I like to apply the concept of Chinese art theory into my oil paintings and my sculptures. As a result, the creation of my works is a fusion of Chinese and Western concepts.
