I like to express my views and reflect the different issues in Hong Kong on my canvases. Therefore, the subjects of my paintings are controversial with subtle meanings and the hidden agenda of political issues in Hong Kong. Art should be thought provoking, art should make people think and ask question and art should speak to the society we live in. That is what I like to explore the surrealism of the reality and the reality of surrealism, in terms of the meaning, but not simply the style of Surrealism or Realism. This is not just an ordinary rice bowl with traditional design used by the ordinary people in Hong Kong. The hidden meaning of a rice bowl is a “job” in Chinese. The bowl is placed on a piece of “Red White Blue” cloth, which symbolizes Hong Kong Identity. The bowl is done in realistic style, which contrasts with the graphic images of neon lights on the background. In fact, the hidden meaning of this painting reflecting the social issues of the red night district in Hong Kong. Therefore the essence of Surrealism is added to the painting.

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.
