About Kenny Mak……
At the very beginning, Kenny self-studied the techniques of Lingnan Art but he met the bottleneck very soon. He understood that he will not have progress without learning from Lingnan Art masters. He admired Lo Ching Yuen for years, thence to quit his job and went to Taiwan to follow master Lo. A few years later, he grasped the basic techniques of Lingnan Art.
In 2014, Kenny depicted a famous Hong Kong dish with the techniques of Lingnan Art. This artwork gained Hong Kong Fine Art Prize which co-organised by the South Korean art museum and Hong Kong art gallery. Kenny was encouraged by this honour and continues his pursuit of art. Thereafter, he staged his solo exhibition in Namsong Art Museum, South Korea. In 2017, Kenny’s painting “Army” has been chosen into Ink Global, which will be exhibited with other 500 world top ink artworks, at Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. The artist described himself is now completely returning to the art world.
