Harold Wong (Huang Zhongfang) showed extraordinary talent as a young artist and exhibited his paintings in Hong Kong beginning in the early 1960s. He then embarked on a successful career as an art dealer in traditional and modern Chinese painting. His life-long training in traditional painting techniques and the experience of studying first-hand the works of China’s great masters has served him well since 1990, when he returned full-time to painting. He continues to live and work in Hong Kong.In a 1997 interview, when asked what concerns him most when painting landscape, the artist replied:”Mainly to capture a sense of that luminosity emanating from the whole landscape. In my paintings this results in all the individual elements ‘swirling’ together in a luminous mass that still has breathing spaces within it.”
