Mok Kam Cheung born in Hong Kong in 1945. Started painting as a vocational Chinese painter since 1987. His passion in painting was triggered after a serious car accident that resulted in brain injury. During his brain recovery he saw vivid colors in his mind and he urged himself to record the imageries with paintings. After his recovery, he continued to pursue his passion in painting and served as an Asian Art docent at Hong Kong Museum of Art since 2003. He graduated with a distinction from the Hong Kong University School of Professional and Continued Education program in Chinese painting and calligraphy. Travel, museum, landscape sketching, observation and memorization inspire his creative works.
Many of these paintings were inspired by natural sceneries such as Yellowstone, Hawaii, and 17 Miles, as well as landscape around the world including glacier and canyon in Norway, cherry blossoms in Japan, beaches and coasts in Taiwan, and gorges and mountains in China.
