About Darius Ma

Darius MA (b.1960) graduated from the Hong Kong First Institute of Art and Design in 1979. With his passion in art, he pursues his career as a graphic designer, and has always got involved and collaborates in painting/creating with Hong Kong and China artists, such as Fish King(魚王) and Yu Kewei (余克危) ever since his graduation.

In his newest series, Wu Wei 無為 _, the artist combines the use of Chinese ink and acrylic on rice paper. Through his use of wild brushstrokes, the artist explores the interaction between the two medium – ink and acrylic and their effect on rice paper; the blended and unblended synthesis of ink and acrylic creates exaggerated and indefinite shapes. The artist emphasizes on the notion of time and space, resulting in strong visual tension in the compositions of the paintings.

Wu Wei無為 stemmed from Lao Zi’s concept of 無為而無不為 – Let it be, yet everything is accomplished. The artist’s concept for the series focuses on effortlessness. The materials engage and interact with each other without any sort of control or force through fluid and gestural brushstrokes.
