Alice Yeung Min-wing, 15

Alice Mak Ka-bik, the composer of the McMug series. Her drawings are not only entertaining and funny, but also meaningful. McMug is typical Hong Kong style and reflects our daily life. It's of great benefit to readers.

Honestly, visual arts is not my favourite, but I know there's an artist named Ah Chung, who designed posters for the New World First Bus. His paintings are simple but lively. He does not draw everything in detail, but focuses on what we need to see in a drawing.

Gigi Lam Chi-ying, 17

Shun Tak Fraternal Association Cheng Yu Tung Secondary School

Famous Dutch painter Pieter Cornelis (Piet) Mondriaan. His paintings exhibit a complexity that belie their apparent simplicity. He is best known for his paintings which consist of rectangular forms of red, yellow, blue or black, separated by thick, black lines. These lines tell me about the basic form of beauty.

Patrick Lee Pak-chuen, 17

La Salle College

Local artist Ah Chung. He has done many beautiful, meaningful drawings and sketches, which have gained popularity in the community. I find his drawings, which incorporate Chinese proverbs, very inspiring.

My favourite is Leonardo Da Vinci. He was one of the greatest painters of the Italian Renaissance. His paintings enlighten the viewer. From his paintings and sketches, we can learn a lot about art.

Tracy Lee Cheuk-sze, 15

Diocesan Girls' School

Umberto Boccioni. Through his futurist paintings and sculptures, he successfully creates confusion in which emotions contrast with the impersonal automation of the machines. I admire his sense of dynamic movement, time and space.

Zee Leung Man-chi, 16

Tang King Po School

I admire Leonardo Da Vinci. He was the first painter of the Italian Renaissance and one of the outstanding personalities of the European Renaissance. He urged people to observe and understand the world scientifically. His works changed the art field forever. His distinctive painting skills led to new developments in art.The ultimate winner will get a Nokia 6130 mobile phone worth $1,698

Japanese comic artist Fujiko F. Fujio. He created the famous comic Doraemon, which is loved by adults and children alike. I like the stories and illustrations, especially the cute Doraemon and the

stupid guy with the strange lips, Nobita.
