Lot Essay

Wucius Wong integrates elements of Chinese classical painting, Chinese and western literature, and graphic design in his art. With the theme “heaven, earth and man”, Wong hopes to express the interdependence of the various elements of the world and the idea of continuity in nature. Wucius Wong was born in Guangdong and moved to Hong Kong in 1946. Fond of literature and art, he started learning western painting on his own in 1956 and later became a student of Lui Shou Kwan. In the 1960s Wong studied in Columbus College of Art and Design in Ohio and Maryland Institute College of Art. In 2017 Wong received the Hong Kong Arts Development Council’s Life Achievement Award, one of the highest accolade given to artists in Hong Kong.
