February   to  March

February wind is gentle. Every living thing is awakening. The spring breeze is swaying lightly, transforming life to a new phase.
In March, the spring rain is misty, and the bamboo forest is so green. It is like an ink painting of smog and dream, interpreting the meaning of life.

Special Presentation of ‘Art Festival –A Continued Tradition’

The “Art Festival · The Continued Tradition” Exhibition has been successfully held earlier in the Hong Kong City Hall. Different designs of costumes were displayed in the exhibition. For example, Arthur lam mixed and matched the characteristic design elements of the 18th century Victorian style to design a long skirt with layered Lace and wide frills. In addition, there are Tina Fu's dresses that combined modern and traditional styles, which integrate ink elements into modern dresses. And more, inspired by the costume elements of the opera Farewell My Concubine, Ms. Yu Hua used the colors on the costume, embroidery and hemming to make the cheongsam. Finally, Celia Wong's secondary creation used old clothes and fashion accessories to create a playful fashion dress. The final high light was Qian Peiling, in brightly colored costumes, with graceful dancing postures, demonstrated Cantonese Opera hand gestures, conveying the spirit of traditional Chinese culture.

Jointly organized by HIYA and ArtNgo, the Home-School Parent-Child Calligraphy Workshop held at the Fringe Club on January 15, 2023 (Sunday) has come to a successful conclusion! Under the guidance of several calligraphy teachers, parents and children wrote their wishes for the New Year with brushes. More than a dozen South Asian children also came to the workshop. Besides brushing Spring Festival couplets and promoting Chinese culture, international cultural exchanges are also a major focus of this event.  This workshop prepared sessions for writing the "Fu (福)" character, brushing Spring Festival couplets, writing red envelopes, etc.  The event also set up several check-in points on the spot that provided photographers taking pictures for the participants.

 Enduring Strength and Passion: The Chinese and Western Art of Ting Yin Yung

Venue: 1/F, 3/F Galleries (JC Contemporary) F Hall, Old Bailey St, Central, Hong Kong

Dates and Time: 24 Dec 2022 - 10 Apr 2023 Tue–Sun | 11am–7pm


The University Museum and Art Gallery of the University of Hong Kong, is honoured to present Enduring Strength and Passion: The Chinese and Western Art of Ting Yin Yung, a retrospective exhibition of Master Ting’s multifaceted work in commemoration of his 120th anniversary. A native of Maoming county in Guangdong province, Ting Yin Yung (1902–1978) studied Western painting in Tokyo at the Tokyo School of Fine Arts in the early 1920s. He returned to Mainland China in 1925 and emigrated to Hong Kong in 1949, where he further developed his artistic practice.

Ting’s painterly styles vary widely. He excelled at figure paintings and abstract depictions that are indicative of Western influence. His figures bring to mind his study of form and volume—a principal of Cubism—whereas other works are rendered in strong and contrasting colours—a characteristic of Fauvism. Master Ting consistently aimed to reconcile the techniques and characteristics of Western and Chinese approaches to painting.

News of the Art World

 Vermeer's Picture-inside-Picture Method

It is not uncommon to see a picture-inside-picture in many of Vermeer's and his contemporaries' paintings of interior scenes, as it was popular among the Dutch middle class to hang pictures on interior walls as decoration. Generally, people don't particularly think of these picture-inside-picture themes as having special significance. But in some cases, notably in Vermeer's paintings, even opponents of the iconographic approach to art history admit that there is a deliberate relationship between the "everyday" foreground scene and these picture-inside-picture subjects.
