Fung Ming Chip
Self-taught, Fung is primarily an artist of the word: essayist, novelist, poet, playwright, zhuan ke (seal carving), shu fa (calligraphy). He was born in Guangdong, raised in Hong Kong and moved to New York City in his mid 20's. Filling the artist within since childhood, his encounter with visual arts in Manhattan and beyond re-awakened this spirit. Responding with his unique approach to the written word, he undertook exploring seal carving and Chinese calligraphy.

Among his many international exhibitions, Fung had a major solo retrospective at the Taipei Fine Arts Museum in 1999. He was artist in residence at Cambridge University, and his work is included in major private and institutional collections around the world, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, White Rabbit Collection, Sydney and Israel Museum, Jerusalem. He has also been active as a painter, photographer, and sculptor. In 2008 he created Les Poemes du Mandarin tableware pattern for Hermes and currently resides in Hong Kong.
