Chan Keng Tin
Born in 1979 in Zhejiang. Chan Keng Tin graduated from the Fine Arts Department of the Chinese Culture University of Taiwan in 2003. In 2008, he joined Luyushun Workshop of the China National Academy of Painting. He is now a member of Chinese Painting Institute Hong Kong, visiting painter of Shenzhen Fine Art Institute and lecturer of the School of Continuing and Professional Studies, the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
As the former director of Hong Kong Art Museum Mr Tang Hoi Chiu said, Chan’s paintings gave people a feeling of “tranquil and infinite, solitary and divine”. Chan has immersed himself in Chinese painting for over a decade. His works have been exhibited in mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong.
He is always able to get to grip with the abstruse secret of ancient landscape painting. The magnificent monumental landscape painting in Song Dynasty, the classical, graceful and elegant intellectuals’ landscape paintings in Ming and Qing Dynasty, and even the contemporary painter's artistic conceptions have influenced him on his art creation.
