TSUI Tin Yun

 

TSUI TIN YUN was born in Shanghai in 1945. He received solid art training in sketch and oil painting in various celebrated art institutes in Shanghai early in life. In 1986, TSUI settled in Hong Kong and after seven years of juggling work and painting, he decided to focus on his art. He has since experimented with different styles and explored with different media and a wide range of subject matters. Now regarded as the most important contemporary Chinese artist in Hong Kong and highly respected in the Chinese art world for his conceptual painting, TSUI uses illusion and imagery to juxtapose conflicting elements together in a single painting. He creates works that are often full of social commentary and always engaging and thought-provoking. They can be found in the collection of the Hong Kong Museum of Art, and in various corporate and private collections around the world.
