Fung Mang Chung was born in Hong Kong in 1990. He graduated from Art Faculty in RMIT in Australia and he later received his MA (Fine Art) degree in the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2016. He has tremendous interest in drawing and kept investigating what art meant to him. Fung believes the dialogue between personal and social knowledge happens through the different, coequal forms of grasping and transformation. He is observant and critical; his inspiration of arts always comes from daily lives.
Fung’s creation is a self-examination as well as a way to understand himself. He believes his direction of life could be guided by self-confrontation. As Heidegger said, “There is no absolute distance between our lives and us. We are our life, and the lucidity of our life is the nature of it.”
Fung has participated in various local and overseas exhibitions and art fairs. His solo exhibitions include: “Fibrillation” 2023 in SC Gallery ; “ Never Forgets” Gallery by the Harbour • Harbour City in 2021.
Group shows in both Hong Kong and the overseas include : “The City Never Sleeps” Abu Dhabi Art Fair 2023; “Inhale Courage”, JPS Gallery Paris 2023 ; “The Collectors’ Choice Art Exhibition“ at Paos Gallery by the Hong Kong Art Centre 2023; “The Collectible Art Fair” at Paos Galleries , Hong Kong Art School; “Where great minds shine- CUHK 60th Anniversary Alumni Art Exhibition” at M+; “The Abnormal State” SC Gallery 2022; “DOOR” by the SHOPHOUSE in 2021, it was both artist residency and a joint exhibition; the “1+1” alumni exhibition by the Hong Kong Art School in Pao’s Gallery in 2021.
