In a built-up city like Hong Kong, where most of us live far from the beauty of nature, we are grateful to those artists who take us back into nature. Chinese landscape artists like Chan Chi-kit do exactly this for us. Chan is holding an exhibition of landscape ink-paintings at the Visual Arts Centre at Hong Kong Park from September 26 to 29. It is his first one-man show, and he will be showing more than 40 of his more recent works. The exhibition will be open from 10 am to 8 pm daily. Chan's artistic style is fresh, vigorous and bold. He applies the ink freely but also meticulously, and in a diversity of styles. The overall effect is one of richness and serenity, something not often seen in art works these days. Chan, who has been an artist for 20 years, is also a serious musician. In 1981, he set up the Concorde Music Institute to promote Cantonese music education.
