Artists in the Neighbourhood Scheme V
Ink is Colour — The Art of
Ou Da-wei
 
Presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department
Organised by the Art Promotion Office
Project Partner: Jao Tsung-I Academy
Arts Accessibility Service Partner:
Jockey Club Arts Accessibility Service Centre, ADAHK
Design Partner: David Lo

Ou Da-wei is a renowned artist in Hong Kong. He was presented the Urban Council Fine Arts Awards in Chinese Calligraphy in 1989 and in Seal Carving in 1998 at the Contemporary Hong Kong Art Biennial Exhibition.

Ou demonstrates his unique style and personality in his landscape paintings, calligraphy works, seal carvings and classical poetry, favouring the use of black and white for his landscapes and calligraphic strokes to endow his works with intense emotion, spirit and charm. His calligraphic style in both seal and clerical script reflects the solemnity and harmony of his character, while his cursive script soars vividly like a bird in flight. With fantastic designs and layouts, he applies his sophisticated seal carving techniques firmly and precisely to produce unique results. Ou often writes poems to accompany his paintings and calligraphy works, expressing his innermost feelings in simple words that carry a deep meaning and can light up people's hearts.

Showcasing more than 80 of Ou's recent landscapes, calligraphy works and seal carvings, this exhibition highlights his skilful integration of calligraphy, painting, seals and poetry. Once the exhibition at the Low Block of Hong Kong City Hall has concluded, a second selection of Ou's works will be displayed at the Gallery of Jao Tsung-I Academy.
