Biography

Choy Yat Chun Anthony

 

Born and raised in Hong Kong, Choy Yat Chun Anthony is an avid sketcher and watercolor painter who finds joy through sketching around the streets of Hong Kong and flower painting. He is an active local post-80s artist, also a member of International Watercolor Society and an exhibitor at local cultural festivals. Since 2012, he began to use pen and ink pen to sketch different subject whatever animal, portrait, cityscapes or countryside scene. The black line can reflect his emotion to the drawing object and you can feel different expression from the width of the ink line. Since 2016, he began studying watercolor and flower becoming the major object.  The series of Hydrangea paintings is the signature of his portfolio and now he is exploring different techniques to depict the beauty of flower, so he went to Thailand and Taiwan for visiting several flower painting masters to study and sketch everywhere in 2017.
