This activity runs the duration of Culture Days.


Richmond, BC

One of the unique features of Ming's Free Style Chinese painting is the concept of negative space. Free Style is based on simplicity, speed control and versatility of brush strokes. The painting only requires minimal brush strokes without a preliminary draft for completion on delicate, thin rice paper. The flora and fauna express the creation of symmetry and asymmetry in nature. Just a few colors and tools are the main essentials for her art. Her style of painting provides a channel for those who want to find a way to relax themselves. Her ability to ignite impact with such simplicity is one of the skills that she mastered in her Art practice.

Every painting has different themes for the picture. The themes represent the importance of companionship, hope, love, support and positivity. From a pair of birds to a family of wild animals - the act of bringing to life the harmony, the portrayal of bonding, the movements of nature subjects on delicate thin rice paper creates a channel for families and communities to experience a breadth of vitality. It also creates the pathway to support people who have mental illness on their healing journey.

Art can heal - The healing power of the arts might become an essential ingredient in our daily life recipe, for all forms of people. Ming would love to share some of her arts with our communities.

Ming is currently teaching Chinese Brush Painting for both adults (registration code #252967) and Children (registration code #253000) at the City Centre Community Centre every Tuesday.


Ming Yeung

After achieving an 'Artistic Innovation' award in 2019, Ming has continued her ongoing art project 'Art for the World's Endangered Species' through exhibitions and teaching. She has been promoting her style of Chinese painting through exhibitions, teaching classes, artist demonstrations, and interviews in the Lower Mainland since 2002. She is an exceptional artistic person with a very deep commitment to her Chinese Free Style painting style and her unwavering commitment to the world's endangered wildlife species.

Displayed at countless galleries, shows, libraries, the cover of a mental wellness publication, workshops she hosted for the homeless and seniors on BC Family Day, and even permanently installed outside the patient and treatment rooms in the BC Children's Hospital, her paintings captured the hearts of a wide audience, including patrons, and a loyal following.
