WONG CHUN HEI
b. 1986, Hong Kong
Stephen Wong Chun Hei graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from the Department of Fine Arts at the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2008. Natural landscape scenery is the main theme in Wong's paintings. Artist combines his intuitive imagination and visual experience during the long hiking trips to create his works. As such, WONG’s landscape paintings provide a sense of mystery, being familiar yet out of place. His works prompt viewers to ponder the relationship between human, nature and virtual reality. Participated exhibitions include the solo exhibition “Looking at the sky and the landscape beneath” (Gallery EXIT, Hong Kong, 2018), “Daydream Travelogues” (Gallery EXIT, Hong Kong, 2016), “Step Back to Nature” (Galerie Ora-Ora, Hong Kong, 2014), group exhibition “The Breath of Landscape” (Hong Kong Museum of Art, Hong Kong, 2019) and “These Painters’ Painters” (ROH Projects, Jakarta, 2018). His work is part of the Hong Kong Museum of Art Collection. The artist currently lives and works in Hong Kong.
