* Students must bring their own aprons to lessons.
CHEUNG Pik Wa Renita
Majoring in Ceramics, Renita received her Bachelor of Art (Fine Art) Degree from Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) University (co-presented by Hong Kong Art School) in 2016. Learning ceramics is a self-discovery process for her. Working with clay is meditative and naturally put her in trance. Her exploration in human consciousness becomes one of the major themes in her work. She uses translucent porcelain and light to materialize abstract ideas and create atmospheres to embrace the spectators.
She received the ‘Giant Year Gallery Award’ in 2015, the ‘Mr. Jerry Kwan Memorial Scholarship’ and the ‘Fresh Trend Art Award’ in 2016. She exhibited her work at ‘The Gallery of Hong Kong Art School’ , ‘Giant Year Gallery’ , ‘Fresh Trend Art Graduates Joint Exhibition’, ‘Asia Contemporary Art Show –The Fall Edition’ , ‘Fine Art Asia’ , ‘Garden of the Artisans’ and ‘Daily Abstract Joint Exhibition’ after graduation. Her artwork has been collected by the Hong Kong Heritage Museum.
