Over the past four decades, Hong Kong painter Yeung Tong Lung has explored various techniques and mediums. Since the 1990s, he has worked primarily in oil, and then around 2000 he began to focus on a specific form of figurative painting. While Yeung’s paintings have remained largely figurative, they are not completely realistic or naturalistic. For Yeung, his theme has always been about painting. He paints people and the objects around him: the everyday scenes and sensations of Hong Kong, or more precisely, his neighbourhoods within the city—North Point, Western District and Kennedy Town.
