Born in Hong Kong with ancestral origin in Tianjin.

 Christina was an undaunting risk-taker in the financial world, riding high in the dazzling money world. However, she met her Waterloo in a financial tsunami. Fortunately, she found her resurrection in the artroom by creating her own artwork and developing her artistic potential. She was transformed from the practical, materialistic world into the priceless artistic universe. Therefore, she believed in art therapy.

 Calligraphy and ink painting - Christina was a student of two renowned contemporary ink painting masters, Lam Tian Xing and Lam Wu Fui. Absorbing the essence of Chinese painting and exercising her adventurous spirit, Christina managed to step out of the conventional framework and establish her own innovative style in the local art field - which gained her the acclaim of art connoseurs. In the diverse field of calligraphy, landscape painting and lotus flower painting, what she likes best is painting parrots which she regards as the symbol of intelligence. By a few stokes of the paint brush, she is able to capture the colourful and delightful beauty of the parrot.

 Apart from Chinese painting, she also indulges herself in pottery. Her creation was inspired by her pupilage with Cao King, the renowned pottery expert of Hong Kong Art Centre. Her pottery works have an ancient look. Recently, she created a collection of Japanese teapots, using pine as the theme. The elegant and unconventional use of colour gives this collection a tough, ancient Japanese look.

 Today Christina straddles the investment and artistic fields. She feels that money and art complement each other and both are her playgrounds in risk-taking. Christina said. “ I love art creation. From it I find spiritual outlet to unleash my overflowing inspiration.   Investment gives me steady income to support my artistic creations, hold exhibitions and pursue priceless, endless artistic achievements.

Christina Tung Wai was invited by Made in Hong Kong to host an internet TV programme named “Beauty of Arts” in April, 2016. The aim of this programme is to promote art to public.  The content includes art collection introduction, art therapy findings and Art Masters interview.  Such rare art programe being so informative and professional  is highly appreciated by different sectors.
