Tsang Chui Mei Hong Kong

Tsang Chui Mei was born in 1972, she obtained her Bachelor and Master degree in Fine Arts from the department of Fine Arts at the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 1996 and 2004 respectively. She was selected to participate a 3-month residency program of Cité Internationale des Arts (Paris, France) in 2015. She often employs colour patches and lines, the very basic elements of painting, in her acrylic works. In coordination with her balanced use of negative and positive space, contrast and generous colours, she presents to spectators an ambiguous spiritual and virtual space. Her recent exhibitions include: ‘Some Landscapes’ at Grotto Fine Art Ltd, Hong Kong), ‘[Purple]: Women of Mankind’ at One East Asia, Singapore. Art works are being collected by the Hong Kong Museum of Art, Fringe Club, Philippe Charriol Foundation, Hotel ICON, Hotel Stage and private collectors.
