“I enjoy drawing, and I appreciate my own creation. I also love to share my art with my family and friends.”
CHEUNG Ka-cheung was a table tennis player when he was young and represented Hong Kong at the 1988 Seoul Summer Paralympic Game. He turned to drawing, which is not as physically demanding as playing sports, due to functional deterioration in his lower limbs.
Ka-cheung may not be an eloquent speaker; nevertheless, he is gifted for telling interesting stories in his art. Sitting in an electric wheelchair and cannot go far, his inspirations are not limited only to his observations in the rehabilitation complex. He loves to trace birds and look at the outside would through their eyes, Ka-cheung then turns his thoughts and imaginations into drawing with a pencil.
It is almost an impossible challenge for Ka-cheung, who suffers from cerebral palsy to draw the details of bird feathers. Every time as he painstakingly endeavors to control the muscle of his hand to lay down every stroke until he completes the piece after months, he feels an enormous sense of satisfaction.
At the present time, Ka-cheung is seriously learning drawing and calligraphy. He wishes to improve his skill so that one day he may become an art teacher working with children, thereby sharing the joy of making art with other people.
