About Erik Cheung

My humble apologies, allow me to be frank,
99% of the paintings we see merely expresses.

When an Art, with a basis on earlier discoveries, through studies, reaches a discipline and addresses a vision, only then would the collection be great. Otherwise, the body of work would lack conviction.

My works could be made the next attraction beyond this contemporary Mannerism.

How do you as a collector decides?
