Lei Chek On

Lei graduated from the Macau Polytechnic Institute of Fine Arts with a bachelor’s degree in sculpture.

He uses abstract techniques to depict the “world” he saw, “It is a world that is withering and illusory”. Therefore he purifies the image he sees through abstract brushstrokes. The simplicity in his abstract paintings is remarkable and impressive. But his purpose is not merely to ‘simplify’ but to filter into new shapes and spaces. On his artistic path, Lei considers the relationship between outlook on life and universal values. There is a series of works in the exhibition about various issues in the current society. the artist takes the current social affairs as a foothold and applies implicit and abstract techniques to narrate his viewpoint.
