Yau was born in Hong Kong. He has started watercolour since 1977, being hailed as a genius of light and established himself as one of Canada’s and Asia’s finest watercolorist. Inspired by Mt. Tremblant in Quebec of Canada, Yau created Dreamland, his first acrylic series in 2003. The dancing houses simply represent loving and lovable people. Some pieces illustrated the skyline of downtown Toronto were selected by Tourism Toronto of Canada to propagate locally and internationally. Land, his latest series about nature, shows the great creation of almighty God. The semi-abstract way of touch receives great response from art lovers and critics.
