About The Work
This an iconic painting of CHU Hing Wah made in 1999. He used mineral pigments and ink applied with the technique of layering and diffusion to express his warm and sympathetic views of human. Incorporating with the imaginary elements, the two little flowers, CHU creates a healing and peaceful energy, reminding people to slow down their busy life.
