When we think about Chinese ink art, we usually associate it with the traditional paintings we see of landscape, figure or flowers and birds painting. And then later on, the contemporary ink movement that breaks new grounds of the art form. But in this day and age with the advancement of digital technology, some artists are applying it to explore new possibilities and ways of expression of ink art. One of them is artist, Wong Chung-yu.
Also injecting new ideas or colours and flavours into something old is artist and illustrator, Wai Wai. Since 2016, she has been doing illustrations about Hong Kong small and vintage shops. She has painted on mural and in shop shutters. Her recent solo exhibition, “Dreams Coming True” in PMQ includes illustrations she made of neighbourhoods such as North Point, Ap Lei Chau, To Kwa Wan and Sai Kung.
With the third wave of Covid-19 in Hong Kong ebbs, the government has relaxed some restrictions of the social-distancing measures, businesses and premises. The closing of performing art venues for months have affected many in the local art scene. But some events are gradually coming back but with limitations. Hong Kong Sinfonietta’s lunchtime concert series will return on 20th October at the City Hall. But instead of holding it in the foyer, it will be inside the Concert Hall.
