Ho Bing Kuen 何炳權
Name in pinyin: He Bingquan
Also known as:
Place of birth: Guangzhou
Dates: unknown-
Art Medium: painting
For many years, Ho has practised the realist mode of oil painting. His subjects are most frequently drawn from the metropolitan life of Hong Kong because he believes that art and life are inseparable. He thinks that if the artist's thought can be clearly depicted, then the message can go straight into the audience's mind. Ho specializes in figurative painting and he admires the Dutch Baroque painter Rembrandt and French Impressionists such as Monet and Degas. During the last decade, Ho has held several solo exhibitions in Hong Kong, among which the most recent one was held at the Fringe Club in 2002.
