Yeung Yick Chung

1921-1981

Yeung Yick Chung was a key member of the New Ink Movement, an important artistic movement in the 1970s. Led by painter Lui Shou-kwan, the movement laid the foundations for modern ink painting by combining the best of Western and Chinese aesthetics.

Born in Jieyang District of Guangdong Province, Yeung settled in Hong Kong in 1949. He gave his first exhibition ten years later at the Hong Kong Arts Festival. While Hong Kong was emerging as a centre of new ink art, Yeung and several contemporaries founded the One Art Group. Yeung was a frequent exhibitor with this group, participating in many group and one-man shows at museums and galleries in Hong Kong, Taiwan and the United States.

Hongkong Land acquired "Landscape" in 1982.
