Eddie LUI Fung Ngar was born in 1947 in Hong Kong, where his parents had settled some years earlier. Completing a studio program at Chinese University of Hong Kong in contemporary ink art conducted by Lui Shou-kwan, Wucius Wong and Laurence Tam, he now practices visual art, 3-D design and works as a visual art consultant. He also enrolled in a three-year part-time visual arts programme with the Extramural Studies Department (now SPACE, the School of Professional and Continued Education) at The University of Hong Kong.
With work that is both beautifully executed and eccentric, and his use of form and colour engaging the viewer, his first solo ink painting exhibition in 1973 was certainly a turning point in establishing his artistic career. That same year he helped set up the Hong Kong Visual Arts Society in partnership with other major players passionately preaching and spreading a unique ink culture. His artworks are included in the permanent collection of the Hong Kong Museum of Art; The Hong Kong Heritage Museum; University Museum and Art Gallery, The University of Hong Kong; Hong Kong Arts Centre; The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts.
