Danny LIU Wing Hung

   

About the Artist

Danny b.1976 in Hong Kong and was raised in Australia during most of his adolescence, values himself as a visual artist who has a strong tendency in realising a simple yet complicated form of arts through the mediums of traditional and contemporary ink with an in-depth appreciation towards Chinese ink paintings. Having followed masters like Hung Hoi, Leung Kui Ting where he acquired the finest techniques and theories, his attainments from Diploma of Chinese painting at HKUSPACE (2008), Art Specialist Course in ink painting at HKVAC (2009), Diploma of Visual Art Education at Renmin University of China, Beijing (2010) and Master of Fine Arts at RMIT (2013) also refined his perceptions on creating art. Liu is determined to embark on a journey in exploring his aesthetics and concepts beyond ink, material and tools for his pursuit of “Where’s the Mountain?” – a theme he shared on Hong Kong’s RTHK’s television programme (March 2013), TVB television programme Dolce Vita (July 2014) and on Phoenix TV programme (Feb 2015). Liu has given Chinese painting workshops to Syracuse University students at City University, HK since 2008; Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts and The New Asia Institute of Advanced Chinese Studies while also giving workshops in his own studio as well as Australia and United Kingdom. Liu has recently won Perspective’s 40Under40 2014 Award (Art Category), Art Revolution Taipei 2015 finalist and was invited by the Hong Kong Urban Renewal Authority to facilitate a series of workshops to the community. Liu’s works have been exhibited in Australia, China, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia.
