David Kwok Lectures
On Chinese Pamting
David Kwok (Kwo Da-Wei),
Chinese artist, will appear in
Owen Building this evening un
der the auspices of the Arts Pro
gram of the Association of Amer
ican Colleges, lecturing on “An
Introduction to Chinese Paint-
He will also discuss the basic
techniques of brushwork, and
explain his own techniques as
reflected in his paintings. At
a demonstration - lecture he
will actually complete some wa-
tercolors, discussing his work
and answering questions about
it. Several original paintings
are on exhibition.
David Kwok’s work represents
a new discipline of the classical
style of Chinese painting. A
great variety of subjects are de
picted by his brush. He not
only specializes in drawing flow
ers, plants and many small liv
ing creatures, but he paints
birds, human figures and genre.
Mr. Kwok was born in Pei
ping in 1919, a member of an
artist family from Shantung. He
became interested in painting
at an early age and began his
training under Ch’i when he
was 15. At 17 he attended the
National Institute of Fine Arts
in Nanking where at the end
of his first semester, three of
his paintings were selected by
the Chinese Artists’ Association
to represent China at the Inter
national Exhibit of Modern Arts
in Paris in 1936.
In 1949 Mr. Kwok became a
resident of Hongkong, where he
held two exhibits of his paint
ings in 1952 and 1953. In the
spring of 1954, the United States
(Government awarded D a vi d
Kwok a scholarship for the study
of Occidental art, first at Iowa
State University ,and later at
