Wong Sau Ching was born in 1954 in Gutian, China. He is inspired by various social and natural phenomenon. His style tends to be somber and vibrant, with a sense of earthy temperaments. He adopts minimal pigments, as he often manipulates the interaction of monochrome colors to display the vividness of his innermost realm. He aims to express the contractions and consistencies between modern society and traditional cultures. There’s a sense of activeness in Wong’s painting languages, which easily recalls audiences to have imaginations.
Wong Sau Ching is currently the instructor of Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre under the supervision of Hong Kong Leisure & Cultural Services Department. He is the Artist-in-Residence and Consultant of Hong Kong Arts Development Council, Hong Kong Education Bureau and Hong Kong Ballet Team. He is the Art Managing Director of Hong Kong International Artists Association, Director of Hong Kong Art Commune and Chairman of “Res Artist” Chinese Branch.
Wong Sau Ching’s pieces are displayed in his solo-painting exhibitions and the joint exhibitions in Hong Kong, London, Shanghai, Japan and so forth. In 2000, Wong succeeded as the only Hong Kong representative to participate in the “World Fine Art Exhibition” in Paris organized by the Cultural Bureau of France. His creativity results in encouraging responses from the art-world. In 2003, Wong’s painting, named “Hong Kong Livelihoo”, was nominated as a displayed art piece in the 3rd China Oil Painting Exhibition of Beijing. In this event, Wong Sau Ching gloriously obtained the “Most Meritorious Award” on behalf of the Hong Kong art-world.
