Interests and Personality

BiographyAfter perfecting his artistic style for the last 30 years Master Simon Wong is now exhibiting and selling his work, an artistic expression with spiritual resolve and self perfection, illustrating a Taoist artistic style which has inspired humanity over the last 1000 years. He expresses the interrelationship between Taoism and Buddhism's thoughts and ways of seeing reality. He has intertwined his Yellow Dragon martial arts with his creative philosophy and music. He aims to combine the best of Eastern and Western philosophy in his artwork. Splash ink, abstract and impressionistic styles are merged together, in his artwork, where the paint is spontaneously and subtly controlled: understood by the Taoist as a hypnotic state that highlights momentary existence and non existence - expressing the sentiment of the Prajnaparamita Heart Sutra that, form is emptiness and emptiness is form,thus, depicting man's relationship and interconnectedness with the cosmos.

That is the difference between a painter and an artist.My friend, if you still can not see beyond that then you still have a long way to go.

"The tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao The name that can be named is not the eternal Nam", you wrote. Anyway we go on painting...but it is not the Eternal.
