Yeung Tong Lung

b.1956, Fujian, China

Yeung Tong Lung was born in 1956 in Fujian, China and moved to Hong Kong in 1973. He began painting in 1975. Yeung’s works deal with both the internal and external landscapes and spaces of human being. Everyday street scenes, old buildings and homes, transportation, ordinary people, back alleys, parks or plants commonly seen in Hong Kong frequently appear in Yeung’s paintings. He plays with perspectives to construct an illusional three dimensional space, providing multiple viewpoints and subtle hints on sightline movements to guide the audience in and out of his painting scenarios.

In 1990, Yeung co-founded Quart Society, one of the first independent art spaces in Hong Kong. Solo Exhibitions of Yeung include “Cuts in Synchronicity: Paintings by Yeung Tong Lung” (ACO Art Space, Hong Kong, 2019); “Just Painting” (Comix Homebase, Hong Kong, 2017). He has also shown in group exhibitions including “Wan Chai Grammatica: Past, Present, Future Tense Show” (Hong Kong Arts Centre, Hong Kong, 2018); “Corner of Dialogue—You Paint, I Paint. Artistic Dialogue and Exhibition” (1a space, Hong Kong, 2003); and “The Box Show” (Hong Kong Fringe Club, Hong Kong, 1994) . His works have also been collected by the Hong Kong Art Museum and M+ Museum for Visual Culture.

Yeung Tong Lung currently lives and works in Hong Kong.
