Hui Yan Ki is a well-known contemporary artist in Hong Kong. He is currently Deputy Chairman of the Hong Kong International Artists' Association, Deputy Chairman of the Hong Kong Oil Painting Research Association and Executive Member of Hong Kong Artists' Association. In 1997, he was awarded a scholarship by the American Freeman Foundation to study art creation in the United States. In 2009, he received the Master of Art from the Fujian Normal University School of Art.

 

Hui practiced drawing under the tutelage of famous artists when young and majored in oil painting at university. He adores Western classical and impressionist painting. An effective fusion of the freehand brushwork of traditional Chinese painting and the emphasis on color and fine brushwork of Western painting produces a unique technique and style that combines the spirituality and elegance of Chinese ink paintings with the light and color of Western oil paintings. Together with a style that is "like water, clouds and mist" evokes an association of aesthetics with meditation and gives viewers a kind of dreamlike and yet refreshing feeling.

 

Hui's works have frequently been on display in Hong Kong, Beijing and Tokyo and have been included in the collections of many art galleries, museums and private collectors.

 

In recent years, Hui seems to have found serenity and his self amidst the hustle and bustle of the modern city. His latest works have shown the tranquility, warmth and beauty in life which we have missed and which we are looking forward to. If the busy modern man wants a moment of lightness and relief, admiring Hui Yan Ki's paintings is the best resort.
