Border lines

What is drawing? For artist and curator Carol Ho Oi-yan, the medium is no longer defined as 'a work on paper' but can be anything from sculpture to installation to video. Drawing has evolved so much over the past 20 years that it offers almost limitless possibilities in contemporary art.

Wandering through Illusions: Wong Chung-yu

Grotto Fine Art From tomorrow-Oct 11

Wong Chung-yu's artistic career was born out of curiosity. After graduating from the Chinese University of Hong Kong with a bachelor's degree in computer sciences in 1999, and then a master's in the same subject three years later, he took his first drawing course at the age of 20 - just to see what it was like. He was hooked.

Mia Pearlman describes her paper creations as a 'meditation on chance, control and the ephemeral nature of reality'. To create her powerful sculptures, she makes complex line drawings in India ink on large rolls of paper and cuts out selected areas to create a new drawing made of positive and negative space.

Get creative and draw whatever you want

I love drawing - it's so much fun! You can draw anything you like on a piece of paper. If you love nature, you can draw butterflies, trees and birds.

If you like design, you can draw pretty clothes, and imagine that you're wearing them.

If you see something beautiful and would like to share it with your mum and dad, make a drawing and give it to them.

When he came back to Hong Kong after 3? years, he held his first show with help from the Italian Cultural Society. So Mr Szeto is the perfect person to take part in this year's Italy 2003 festivity.

Back to basics

DRAWING, probably the very first visual art skill that most artists learn, is usually ignored in the area of contemporary arts.

Artists answer calling with doodles done on mobile

The Early Years
