In this talk, Mr Ho Sai-chu will walk through curated work of Chinese painting and calligraphy from the Chih Lo Lou Collection with us. Let’s appreciate Chinese art through immersing ourselves in the artists’ stories and the historical backdrops of the artworks. Chinese art will not only inspire us to reflect on our modern lives, it will also enhance our cultural literary and refine our aesthetic sense.
