Koon Wai-bong 管偉邦

Hong Kong artist Koon Wai-bong employs ink in his work to inherit the concept of 'recreating the classics'. His 'recreation' deviates from the parochial view which emphasizes on pedantic knowledge and the techniques used in old masterpieces. It is a transformation towards a new and contemporary aesthetics. He has developed an oeuvre of polyptychs of paintings. Executed with the precise brushwork, Koon’s painting landscapes often lend themselves into a visual ambiance that exudes a vision of reconciliation between the tranquility of nature and the creativity of the artist.
