The Scream of Tree

“The scream of Tree” is a rare full-length painted masterpiece by Mr. Wong Pui Kong. In the painting, the giant tree resists the pollution and oppression with a stern. As the world is developing rapidly and trampling the nature, the giant tree has no choice but only to struggle with its last scream. In such a rapidly developing city we are living, we should stop a while and enjoy the remaining scenery.

Mr. Wong Pui Kong

He was born in Macau in 1931. He had lived in Kobe, Japan. He is a tutor at the Chinese University of Hong Kong and a director of the Hong Kong Artists Association. He was the winner of the Urban Council Fine Arts Award in 1975. He has students all over the world and he is famous in Hong Kong. Mr. Wong's feature of creativity is to express new things with traditional techniques. He does not plan anything before writing and not be restrained. He can write freely and be chill. He also keeps developing the art.

Style of creation

Mr. Wong Pui Kong insists that he has "NO STYLE". He does not plan anything before painting. He allows his first stroke to extend to the second stroke, and the second stroke to extend to the third stroke, and so on. He once said: "No matter what the shape, the color, the style are. If you can make the relative balance, a painting can naturally be made." Maybe "Free" is exactly his "UNIQUE STYLE".

Message to Young Artists

There are no boundaries, no distinction between right and wrong, You can keep improving and pushing your limits rather than being restricted by the shackles of Arts. It is better to create your own and unique art by yourself.

Hopes on Metaverse

There are no boundaries, no distinction between virtuality and reality. Metaverse is exactly the opportunity to extend traditional art to another field. Mr. Wong Pui Kong hopes to unlock the art through this charity auction and open the door of art to the Metaverse. He hopes to provide a space combining "Physicality" and "Virtuality" for young artists, art lovers and collectors to explore art.
