In a small atelier in Hong Kong stately trees guard a meandering river, lilies float peacefully on a pond’s surface and ancient stone cottages cast shadows across a path of sunshine. Such images endlessly inspire Clement Tsang as he transfers the artful ideas in his mind first to sketchbooks and then to the Chinese and Western paintings, and photography.
Hong Kong-born artist, age 65, Clement Tsang has been interested and involved in the arts ever since he can remember. In early 60’s he studied Painting with a famous Chinese instructor, Professor Chen Shou Soo, who had lived in Rome for over twenty years. However, after two years training his desire to paint seriously was not aroused until the time when he lived and worked in England for several years in order to learn western painting and photography. After that he made four profoundly inspiring trips to Europe. There, he was inspired by the great European masters. He was especially excited by post-impressionist and expressionist art.
After he returned to Hong Kong and where he studied and taught traditional and contemporary Chinese painting and Western Painting for over 20 years. In 1990 he immigrated to Canada and set up Clement & Elsie Art Gallery. As well he set up Royal Canadian Art & Music Institute in BC, Canada. Clement is a member of the Federation of Canadian Artist (AFCA), and many of his works were chosen to be displayed and awarded. Recently Clement retired and returned to Hong Kong, and continue his teaching and painting and taking photo for leisure.
