Set of 12, ink on paper

Fung Wing-kee, Raymond, was born in Hong Kong and started learning Chinese painting in 1967. He was awarded a Bachelor’s degree in architecture from the Louisiana State University, USA in 1978. He completed a course in Chinese painting at the Department of Extramural Studies of The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 1985. Fung is an architect by profession, and is currently Adjunct Associate Professor in the School of Architecture at The Chinese University of Hong Kong, a member of the Development Committee under the Board of West Kowloon Cultural District Authority, and Museum Expert Adviser to the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.
In this painting of the islands of Hong Kong, the artist uses simple and semi-abstract brush strokes together with design elements to depict Hong Kong’s natural landscape devoid of urban development, thus creating a warm sense of calm in order to express his feelings for the place he calls home.
