Wai Ming - China

Art Brokerage: Wai Ming Chinese Artist aka King Kwok: b. 1938. Wai Ming, was born in Canton, South China on November 11, 1938. The son of a school master with nine children, extremely poor as a child, he was raised in Hong Kong enduring many hardships amidst a chaotic environment of war and refugee settlements. Despite the focus on practical matters from such a state of affairs, Wai Ming's love for art flourished and he developed his drawing techniques without any art education, just painting what he saw. In the 1960s, Ming found representation in Hong Kong and also took the unusual step of opening his own gallery to display his work in. His primary interest being to capture images of life in fishing villages, or 'fish-folk', who have retained traditional Chinese culture, his work was at home with the sensibilities of many art buyers in Hong Kong, and so was able to find some initial success. Crossing the ocean in his mid-30s, Wai Ming arrived in the United States from Hong Kong in 1974. His original oil paintings and fine art reproductions are admired and collected throughout the world.
