綜觀楊東龍四十年的繪畫生涯,走過不同的階段,嘗試過不 同的繪畫手法和媒材。自千禧以來,他回歸具象繪畫,探尋 屬於自己的「寫實」路線:作品具象卻不全然擬真寫實。楊 東龍畫畫的主題就是繪畫,用繪畫思考繪畫。楊自言甚麼題 材都可以入畫,就決定畫身邊的人事物,畫他活動的區域如 北角、西環、堅尼地城的日常,及感覺。
Over the past four decades, Hong Kong painter Yeung Tong Lung has explored various techniques and mediums. Since the 1990s, he has worked primarily in oil, and then around 2000 he returned to a specific form of figurative painting. While Yeung’s paintings have remained largely figurative, they are not completely realistic or naturalistic. To Yeung, his theme has always been about ‘painting’. He paints people and the objects around him: the everyday scenes and sensations of Hong Kong, or more precisely, the neighbourhoods within his city—North Point, the Western District and Kennedy Town.
楊東龍生於1956年中國福建,1973年移居香港。1980年 代中開始展出作品,一直活躍至今。1991年與一眾藝術友 人創辦另類藝術空間Quart Society。他的畫作為香港藝術 館、M+博物館及私人所收藏。
