CHENG Ka-yan

Ka-yan is lively and cheerful.  She loves sports, singing and dancing.  For painting, her favorite themes are words from advertisement, portraits of historical figures or characters from legends as well as buddhas.


In her early-stage painting, she was unable to keep the scale of the objects in a work.  Quite often, she would find no more space available to complete all the images in the end.  Thus, many of her earlier paintings were out of proportion.  After a year’s practice, she had significant improvement in applying the technique of proportion, and the faces of the portraits became more consistent. Her paintings were more colourful because she has become more skillful in both color selection and mixing.  Objects painted by her, no matter they are figures, articles and things or landscapes all carry a flavor of childlike innocence. The brush strokes of her works are simple and smooth while colors are bright and pleasant. They are very pleasing when you watch them.


Ka-yan also does another creation: paper-cutting. In fact, she has been doing calligraphy on paper scraps for some time. The words she writes are all about her daily living or the impressive terms she heard from the television programs. She keeps piles of these terms in her mind. She cuts the terms out from paper and presents them before us in rich and bright colors. What we see, in fact, is the memory of an era of Hong Kong.
