  • 胡宇基 小夜曲 設色紙本 鏡片 一九八五年作

    款識:余居美洲已十載,畫藝進展神速,但色彩艷麗,深感雅素之可愛。此幀頗有可取之處,將來也許以此法而變通為我法也。一九八五年七月,宇基重遊歐洲,作此以留紀念。
    鈐印:胡

    Born in Dongguan, Guangdong, China, in 1927, Hu Yuji (Henry Wo) studied art in mainland China and Hong Kong and became student of Professor Zhao Shao'ang (Chao Shao'ang) in the late 40's. In 1975, he and his family emigrated from Hong Kong to the suburb of Washington D.C, United States of America, where he was inspired by the beautiful scenery in the neibourhood. He was dedicated to studying the artistic heritage and portrayal of nature while producing paintings with strong personal style. In recent years, he returned to Hong Kong where he kept painting and teaching students the traditional Lingnan style painting as well as a blended style of his own where East and West meet.

    His paintings have been exhibited in Canada and Australia and throughout the Asia and the United States. His work is included in the collections of the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco, Art Museum of Hawaii, Birmingham Museum of Art and Mobile Museum of Art in Alabama, Amherst College in Massachusetts, Lyman Allyn Art Museum in Connecticut, Rockhill Nelson Art Museum of Kansas City and Springfield Art Museum in Missouri, City of Hamilton Art Gallery in Australia, Hong Kong Museum of Art, Peking University in China, National Museum of History in Taiwan, and Taiwan Museum of Art.

    胡宇基, 1927年於廣東省東莞巿出生,先後於中國大陸及香港進修中國畫及西洋畫。1949年成為嶺南派畫家趙少昂學生。1975年離開香港,與家人前往美國華府近郊亞歷山大鎮定居。此後的三十年,面對郊區的自然美景,胡取得無數靈感,創作出一系列和大自然的景象有關的佳作。近年,胡返回香港定居,其創作並未間斷, 亦繼續教授其嶺南以至中西融合風格的繪畫方法。

    胡曾於美國各省以至世界各地舉行聯展及個人展覽。其作品被各大藝術館永久收藏,包括美國舊金山亞洲藝術博物館、美國夏威夷藝術博物館、美國阿拉巴馬州Birmingham博物館及Mobile美術館、美國麻省Amherst大學、美國康州Lyman Allyn美術館、美國密蘇里州Rockhill Nelson美術館及Springfield美術館、澳洲咸美頓巿藝術館、香港藝術館、中國北京大學、台灣歷史博物館、和國立台灣美術館等。
