Aesthetic Features


Wong Sau Ching obtains inspirations from his observations on various social and natural phenomenons. His style tends to be somber and vibrant, with a sense of earthy temperaments. He adopts minimal pigments, as he often manipulates the interaction of monochrome colors to display the vividness of his innermost realm. He aims to express the contractions and consistencies between modern society and traditional cultures. There’s a sense of activeness in Wong’s painting languages, which easily recalls audiences to have imaginations.
