Wucius Wong Mountain Melody #1, 2009 Ink and colour on paper 96.5 x 131 cm Wucius WONG is the pioneer of Hong Kong’s New Ink Painting Movement, which from the 1960s to 1980s represented Hong Kong’s official art in international circles. He has renovated landscape art by introducing graphic design technique into the ink painting language. Wong’s vision reflects the modern urban dweller’s relation to nature, and the challenges he faces in reconnecting with a cultural past cut off by modernity.
