Born in Hong Kong in 1971, Ng Lung Wai (伍龍威) received his master’s degree in architecture from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Ng Lung Wai directs his artistic sensibilities towards the re-creation and reinterpretation of artistic materials, forms and techniques. He seeks to expand his artistic vision, while challenging the norms and status quo of painting. In defiance of painting’s conventional limits, Ng developed the ‘folding paint’ technique, in which he creates three-dimensional, paint-based components assembled on a canvas or flat screen. His works are at once abstract and figurative, enigmatic and direct, flat and three-dimensional.
