Lo Ching Yuan, born in 1946 in Guangdong Meixian, has held more than 20 solo exhibitions in Hong Kong, Taiwan, USA, Malaysia, China, Canada and other countries. Lo has been specialized in Lingnan art in his early age and he graduated from Lingnan Art Studio in Hong Kong. His teacher is Chao Shao-an, one of the masters of Lingnan art. Lo’s paintings are highly recognized; for example, his paintings are collected by the British Parliament, the National Museum of History in Taipei, the National Taiwan Art Education Institute, the National Dr. Sun Yat-San's Memorial Hall, the Hong Kong government and so on. For the sake of promoting Lingnan art, he established the Yunshan Studio to teach many students.
Lo dedicated himself in the creation of Lingnan paintings and it covers subjects of landscapes, birds-and-flowers and animals. His use of colour is elegant, and he enhances the atmosphere through the splashed background. He captures the physical form, the spirit and the mood of the animals. Thus, eagle, peacock, deer, bird and tiger are usually vividly delineated in his way of interpretation and more realistic after his painting on papers. Lo specializes eagle because he admires the personality of eagle. The eagle has no fear of difficulties even facing the bad weather and dangerous environment. He hopes that he has a fearless spirit of a conqueror like eagle.
