Hu Yongkai @ Wan Fun Art Gallery, Hong Kong

Chinese artist Hu Yongkai paints elegant Chinese ladies in a style reminiscent of Matisse and Modigliani.

His romantic paintings have a strong whiff of nostalgia, portraying a bygone age - ladies daydreaming, lazing around sitting on Qing Dynasty furniture with birdcages and fans,washing their hair in ponds.

“Nostalgia and Imagination - Painting Exhibition of Hu Yongkai”  at Wan Fund Art Gallery will open Jun 25, presenting 70 works by the artist.
