Koon Wai Bong received his training in Chinese painting at the Chinese University of Hong Kong and RMIT University in Australia. He is an artist as well as Assistant Professor at the Academy of Visual Arts of Hong Kong Baptist University.
With an education influenced by the Suzhou and Zhejiang school of literati painting, Koon strives to preserve the technique and aesthetic in the traditional ink and brush genre. He "reworks the classics" by instilling elements such as innovative spatial arrangement and novel presentation, firmly establishing himself as a contemporary artist with a wealth of inheritance from the ink painting tradition. His works often portray narrow or collaged view of landscape, which offer a restricted vision of a world that is shared by many in our metropolis. Koon also experiments in various media such as traditional Chinese dress and installation assembled by multiple fans, showing the infinite possibilities of presenting ink art to a contemporary audience.
