About Christina Tung (Shan Ying)  關於董慧(繕影)

Christina Tung (also known as Shan Ying) is a Hong Kong based artist and the founder of Cheer Bell Gallery. Feathers have been a recurring subject in Christina’s artworks to reflect her aspirations in freedom and experience in life. Feathers stand stoic and overcome hardness with softness, even in the face of adversity. Other times, they are filled with idealism, fluttering about towering landscape to construct a free-spirited imagery. What makes feathers remarkably elegant and noble is the way that they fly so comfortably no matter how vast the sky or how deep the ocean is. In Christina’s view, the utmost happiness comes from the freedom of thought rather than wealth itself.


Christina entered the vibrant world of ceramics and arts under the guidance of the well-known ceramic artist Ms. Janet Tso in 2010. Since 2011, Christina has been a student of contemporary ink colour Master Lam Tian Xing and Lingnan school ink painting Master Lam Wu Fui. In 2018, Christina began studying Chinese calligraphy under Chinese Calligrapher Mr. Cheung Sing Kwo. By the end of 2018, she was selected to be one of the fifteen students in Southeast Asia to attend the “Contemporary Ink Talent Peak Class” at Shanghai Institute of Visual Art (SIVA) under the guidance of Master Liu Kuo-sung, Father of Modern Ink Painting, and Shi Mo, first national artist in China. 


Since 2013, Christina has taken part in various international and overseas joint expositions and exhibitions such as Salon du Dessin et de la Peinture à l’Eau 2020, Art Taipei, Affordable Art Fair Hong Kong and Thailand-Malaysia International Women Artists Art Exhibition.


In 2018, she made her solo exhibition debut at the Museum of Russian Academy of Fine Arts and Molbert Gallery in Russia respectively. She was then invited by the Consulate General of the Russian Federation in Hong Kong and Russian Club Hong Kong to hold her third solo exhibition in late 2018, where her work titled “Noble Aspiration” became a collection of the Russian Consulate. A number of her works have been collected by financial institutions and collectors from all over the world.

Her work titled “Anti-coronavirus” is selected and featured in the WeChat post of Beijing International Art Biennale “Fighting with Love” Anti-coronavirus Series (Hong Kong); and “Rui Qi Xiang He (1)” is selected as 1 of the 500 ink masterpieces worldwide to be exhibited at Ink Global 2020 in March 2021.


She is now the Chairman of “Cheer Bell International Art Association”. She’s also the Committee Member of “The 4-D Art Club”. She’s the Honorary President of “Traditional Skills Association of Hong Kong” as well. Furthermore, she’s a member of “Hong Kong Artists Association”, “Shine Art Association”, “Woodland Art Association”, “Contemporary Innovative Ink Painting Association” and “Hong Kong Modern Ink Painting Society”.


董慧(別名繕影),香港畫者及盈鑾畫廊創辦人。以羽毛入畫構成意象,寫她對自由的嚮往及自身體驗,縱然遇到大風雨,羽毛都能面對逆境,以柔制剛。羽毛充滿理想,以奔放的氣勢縱橫浩瀚山水。無論是遼闊的天空或是浩莽的大海,羽毛都顯得悠然自得、高雅飄逸。董慧認爲,人類最祟高的快樂不是來自財富而是來自思想的自由!

2010年在著名陶藝家曹京女士指導下,全情投入幻變多姿的陶瓷藝術世界,更打開了她生命中的藝術之門。自2011年起師承當代重彩大師林天行老師及嶺南派大師林湖奎老師修習水墨畫。2018年師從書法家張聖果老師鑽研書法。在同年年底,獲上海視覺藝術學院的「水墨高峰班」取錄,爲東南亞中被挑選的十五位藝術家其中之一,師從現代水墨之父劉國松老師及國家一級美術師石墨老師。


自2013年,董慧曾參與亞洲各地的大型國際及海外展覽和博覽會,如法國巴黎沙龍藝術展、台北國際藝術博覽會、香港Affordable Art Fair、泰馬國際女性藝術家藝術展等等。


2018年,她在俄羅斯聖彼得堡列賓美術學院博物館及當地摩伯特畫廊分別舉辦首次及第二次個展。其後於年底獲俄羅斯駐港總領事館及香港俄羅斯協會提名及邀請於盈鑾畫廊舉辦第三次個展《靈感》,作品〈雲中白鶴〉更被俄羅斯駐港總領事館收藏。其作品曾被多間金融機構及來自各地的收藏家收藏。

她的作品「斬妖除魔」獲選入中國北京國際美術雙年展的《用愛一起抗》防疫專題系列 (香港特區專輯),並通過微信發帖於線上發佈。另外,其作品「瑞氣祥和」亦剛入選了《全球水墨畫大展2020》500幅優秀水墨畫作之一,並入圍參展2021年3月的《全球水墨畫大展2020》。


董慧現為「盈鑾乙味國際藝術協會」主席。她亦是「香港四維彩墨畫會」理事。同時,她是「香港傳統技藝拓展協會」榮譽會長。除此以外,她是「香港美協」、「尚思硏藝學會畫會」、「草木畫會」、「當代創意水墨畫會」及「香港現代水墨畫會」的會員。
