Chau Peng Kuong

For more than 20 years, I have been working on Chinese calligraphy and painting mounting. I am particularly interested in creating new ways of mounting, experimenting with different materials and innovated techniques, combining the two, picture and mounting, and presenting them together as one complete artwork.
