Abstract art, it is a reality that does not exist, a product of thought, momentary feelings, and music melody.....all that could be my inspiration to create.
Artists works are often inseparable from their cultural background. I'm no different. Eastern influence constantly guides my path. I use the rhythm of calligraphy, color strokes, to create my work.
Fong Fai studied art at the Hong Kong Academy of Art in Hong Kong.
He was selected as one of the six leading artists in Hong Kong. He owned an art gallery ( Fong's Art Gallery ) and also taught at the Oriental Arts Institute in Hong Kong.
His artworks were exhibited in Asia, Australia and North America. Later, Fong Fai was invited to exhibit his paintings in San Francisco And Hawaii, where he fell in love with this beautiful country and decided to stay. Today his works continues to appear in theStates He is an abstract artist. He used brushwork of calligraphy to create his artwork, his works take on a wider and freer soul view and own dense oriental feeling, and try to integrate the concept of Eastern and Western art.
Now helives inSan Francisco.
