Cheuk-kwok has focused on one theme each year for his painting. With the same theme, the content seems very similar. However, the complexity, amounts of details, ratios in the objects and space have shown subtle changes with the flow of time. His works have become more organized and sophisticated at the later stage of his art learning. Recently, he focuses on painting of his parents. Themes of his previous paintings were those he learned from the class. But now he chooses his own theme. What motivates him to paint his father again and again in various representations this year? What kind of affection he is revealing through the color pencils?view details

“It’s OUR GRADUATION!”
This is a three-year art education program specifically for persons with different
abilities. It is a bold and innovative experiment as its concept, design,
implementation and evaluation are unprecedented.
Interested to know how did we learn elements of visual art?
How did we, step by step, establish our individual art language in these three years?
How did we spend our 3-hour lesson?
You are still curious about us and got more questions?
Come and have a look yourself!
All classmates, art instructors, staff members, family and researchers learned together, grew together and graduated together
In collaboration with Department of Visual Studies, Lingnan University, apart from art in practice, art theory is also taught in this program. Our professional instructors and other team members followed the progress of our students in every class and in every term, in order to learn from them how we should develop the teaching foe next lesson according to their needs.
This systematic art learning program covers a total of 700 hours plus. We started to know each other from points, lines and planes. We dozed in the class, played with colors, felt dazing when holding a brush and pretended as a famous painting in the game “Comparison of Master Pieces”. Then we found the subjects and media we love and our own individual art language to express ourselves. We got used to meet each other on each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. We placed ourselves in a comfy place and laid down our painting utensils for creation. We needed no verbal communication for our tacit understanding. We respect and tolerate each other. This Graduation Show withnesses our ways of getting along with others, as well as our growth. We need to learn more. However, this is a very precious experience for being together for 3 years.
We respectfully waiting for your visit and look forward to our sharing with you on our experience.

i-dArt Presents–Clay New Day
Being the nomads, they sing, they live and they wander; they create, they appreciate andtheyenjoy their lives. Like nomads, like our creators: they wandered from a corner of a sister unit to the new ceramic space with sweetness and sadness, and the journey is beautiful, impressive and full of fun.
Time orders stars change their positions andmatters change their faces, but it causes no change on their power of creativity. The experiences of changes possibly enrich their feelings towards life and which become their ever present springs of inspiration.
Their hands are skillful and their minds are tranquil. Clay were gathered in their hands and the colors and the textures were changing gradually: telling us each of their characteristics. When you watch more, you are more charmed by their beauty of simplicity. Today, their combined effort and every bit of improvements have helped to fabricate a new world of ceramics.view details

“If one day I die, who will come to give me a bow at the funeral? Who will cry for me?”
———- Artist LEONG Iat-hong asked.
Iat-hong, being curious and always asks questions on big and small daily living matters as well as on artwork creations, surely will have many doubts on death when he is in aging process. For instance, “Will people have eyes, ears, mouths or noses after death?” or “How do you know the style of my coffin? Anyway, I cannot say anything when I am dead.” or “Will l become a Chinese zombie after death? If so, I will feel exhaused because of the non-stop hopping.”, and so on.
In the paintings of Iat-hong, all are lines. The world he is longing for in stroke after stroke, we found it as if chanting enchantments one after one and saying prayers piece after piece. All these lines help to release Iat-hong’s worries. We hope that his creations will bring blessings to those who come here, and those who have gone.

So there is a saying that “Calligraphy and Painting are of the same origin.” “Practising Calligraphy from a Combo of Phrases” is more than presenting the writing techniques of these eighteen artists with different abilities. They caused the dancing movements of [...]view details
