Biography

Christina Tung Wai is a Hong Kong based contemporary ink feather artist, the founder of Cheer Bell Gallery and a curator. She is known for incorporating feathers and Taoist philosophy as recurring subjects in her creations to represent the revelations in her life and her longing for freedom.


She started her endeavor in art by studying ceramic art under Ms. Janet Tso in 2010, and later, Chinese ink art under contemporary ink colour Master Lam Tian Xing and Lingnan school ink painting Master Lam Wu Fui, and Chinese calligraphy under Cheung Sing Kwo and Bai He. In 2019, she completed the “Contemporary Ink Artists Summit Program” at Shanghai Institute of Visual Art, and is now studying Chinese ink art under the tutelage of Master Liu Kuo-sung, Father of Modern Ink Painting.


In 2018, she made her debut and second solo exhibition at the Museum of Russian Academy of Fine Arts and Molbert Gallery, respectively, in St. Petersburg, Russia. She was then invited by the Consulate General of the Russian Federation in Hong Kong and Russian Club Hong Kong to hold her third solo exhibition “Inspirations” in late 2018, where her work titled “Noble Aspiration” became a collection of the Russian Consulate. In 2020, Christina became one of the selected artists of “Chinese Contemporary Art Document”. In 2021, her fourth solo exhibition “Birds of a Feather” was held at Cheer Bell Gallery. In 2022, her fifth and sixth solo exhibitions “Odyssey of Feather” were held at Hong Kong City Hall and Fine Art Asia respectively. In 2023, her seventh solo exhibition “Odyssey of Feather” was held at the AsiaWorld-Expo, Hong Kong.


Throughout her career as an artist, Christina has taken part in various international and overseas joint expositions and exhibitions such as Salon du Dessin et de la Peinture à l’Eau 2020 of Paris, Art Taipei, Affordable Art Fair Hong Kong and Thailand-Malaysia International Women Artists Art Exhibition. Collectors of her works include the Consulate General of the Russian Federation in Hong Kong amongst others.


2020 has been a significant year for Christina’s art path. Her work “Anti-coronavirus” was featured in Beijing International Art Biennale “Fighting with Love” Anti-coronavirus Series (Hong Kong). Moreover, her work “Propitious Portent” was selected as 1 of the 500 ink masterpieces worldwide in Ink Global. Other than that, she was the award winner of Salvatore Ferragamo shoe design collaboration between Hong Kong Art Gallery Association (HKAGA) and prestige Italian brand Salvatore Ferragamo. The pair of Viva ballet flats, hand-painted by Christina, was then showcased at Phillips’ 20th Century & Contemporary Art, Famous Paintings, Design, Jewels and Watches auctions, and was collected by Salvatore Ferragamo then. 

 

Christina Tung Wai is now the Chairman of “Cheer Bell International Art Association” and the Committee Member of “The 4-D Art Club” of Hong Kong. She is also a member of “The Hong Kong Artists Association”, “HongKong Guangzhou Arts Association”, “Hong Kong Modern Ink Painting Society”, “Contemporary Innovative Ink Painting Association”, “Shine Art Association” and “Woodland Art Association”.
