While most of the par­tic­i­pat­ing artists have found their themes in Hong Kong land­scapes and the city’s peo­ple, Wong Chun-man prefers paint­ing the ex­otic lands he vis­its. Ye­ung feels Wong’s tech­nique ex­em­pli­fies the char­ac­ter­is­tics typ­i­cal of Hong Kong wa­ter­col­ors — an art genre that de­vel­oped as a re­sult of the in­ter­ac­tion be­tween Western and Eastern art.

“How to de­fine Hong Kong artists?” This is a ques­tion cu­ra­tor Ye­ung fre­quently asks him­self. The an­swer to that, he feels, lies not so much in the sub­jects Hong Kong artists choose to de­pict, rather in the tech­niques they use.

“The cur­rent show and other ex­hi­bi­tions or­ga­nized by Sun Mu­seum ex­pect to pro­vide a plat­form where Hong Kong artists are able to ex­press their per­son­al­i­ties and their own per­cep­tions of arts and cul­ture,” Ye­ung said.
