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. 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 depicts this landscape with uniform colours.  He applies a superlative treatment of brushstrokes, contour lines, and gradation of light to create the remarkable strength and velvety texture of the forested slopes around the placid reservoir. The thin mist that shrouds the distant mountains and the dwarfed turret on the footbridge are literati attributes of Chinese painting.  The work imbues an emotional affinity towards nature.  

Hongkong Land commissioned the “Tai Tam Upper Reservoir” in 2012.
