Chan Chok Ki is a Hong Kong contemporary artist. He has extensive experiences in academic, engineering and business fields prior to becoming a full time artist six years ago. A frequent traveler, he is deeply inspired by the diversity and richness of culture, history and people around the globe. Often disturbed by the social divide, inequalities and contradictions in society, he employs surreal and symbolic visual languages in his oil paintings to reflect the absurdity of modern life. Vivid colors and composition of the paintings convey to viewers the artist's strong passion, deep feelings and optimism in life. His paintings are thought-provoking and intended to stimulate audiences to transcend across boundaries and re-examine the meaning of life in modern society.
