Fong So 方蘇

Fong So is a journalist-turned artist. He was an editor of a current affairs magazine before turning to art. Despite his training in traditional Chinese painting and the media of brush and ink, both the content and the genre of his work are obviously different from those of traditional Chinese painting. He also works with woodcut prints. His works have been exhibited in Hong Kong, South Korea, the UK and the USA. He has works in the collections of the Hong Kong Museum of Art, the Gwangju Art Museum in South Korea, and the British Museum in London.
