Tsang Chui Mei (b.1972) is one of the most important contemporary artists in Hong Kong art scene. Her work has been widely collected by museums and private collectors, such as Hong Kong Museum of Art, Fringe Club, Philippe Charriol Foundation, Hotel ICON, Hotel Stage, Hyatt Regency Hong Kong, and Michelin three star Italian restaurant 8½ Otto e Mezzo. Tsang was awarded to participate in the Artist-In-Residency Programme – Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris 2015 (Consulate General of France in Hong Kong & Macau). She was the winner of the Philippe Charriol Foundation’s 20th Anniversary Competition in 2005 and the Hong Kong Urban Council Fine Arts Award (Painting) in 1998.

Tsang is now also in charge of the painting department of Hong Kong Art School.

Tsang has cultivated a distinctive abstract style that seamlessly blends traditional Eastern and Western painting techniques. She focuses on painting, her motif is “scene”, and often employs colour patches and lines, the very basic elements of painting, in her works. The scene described, such as the sky, cliffs or coasts, which are filled with debris, peeled off rocks, and scattered with sediments, refer to the state of disharmony in the natural environment. The interlacing of positive and negative spaces, mark-makings of automatic techniques, the layering of materials and erasing techniques on the canvas are inspired by Western abstract painting art. In addition, the composition of her works refers to the sense of space and the concept of multi-perspective in Chinese ink painting.
