Lam Man Kong 

Lam Man Kong inherits the traditional techniques of classicism and impressionism. He uses the language of oil painting with equal emphasis on light and color to construct the spirit, secrets and poetry of nature. The color and shade conceive the light and shadow, and the picture is fabricated with consistent brushstrokes. Without being constrained by the form of the natural world, the artist moves towards the purity and enchantment of nature. Composes a new connection between human beings and the natural world. The artist is like a troubadour who puts keen observation and delicate feeling in his works so that the works evoke people's contemplation of the universe and yearning for light.
