Curated by Alisan Fine Arts director Daphne King, the show presents Lui’s works next to those of 12 of his students, as well as eight of their students, demonstrating how deep his influence runs. Lui was in his mid-20s when he took up painting, with a determination to revive and reinvigorate traditional Chinese ink painting in the postwar era. In 1948, shortly after the end of WWII, he moved from his home in Guangzhou on the Chinese mainland to the island of Hong Kong. By the late 1950s, he had established himself as a powerful artistic force in his adopted city’s art scene. He eventually would be credited with helping shape the development of art in postwar Hong Kong and fostering the New Ink Painting Movement, which impacted artists in Europe and the States as well.
