Lee Chi Cheung

b. 1951

Lee Chi Cheung was born in Xiamen of Fujian Province, China, and he grew up in Hong Kong. In 1968, he started studying Chinese painting at Fan Fung Studio. The following year he had his debut exhibition at the City Museum and Art Gallery the following year. In 1973, he received the Fine Arts Award at The Royal Over-Seas League Art Exhibition in London. He has held over 30 solo and group exhibitions in the UNITED STATES, UNITED KINGDOM, Monaco, Taiwan, The Philippines, China and Hong Kong.  

Lee constructs a pictorial landscape of the sleepy jagged inlet with echoes of the past. He represents the craggy hills with expressive, stylised, textured ts’un strokes and orderly contours. Further afield, the sweeping range of Wu Tong Shan can be viewed across the Sham Chun River in China.  This painting engages an emotional affinity towards nostalgia of when these remote lowlands were covered with paddy fields, devoid, otherwise, of signs of human existence.

Hongkong Land commissioned the “Starling Inlet” in 2012.
