Lui Shou Kwan was a prominent artist and the chief initiator of the ink painting movement in Hong Kong. As a pioneer of ink painting, Lui not only mastered the Chinese brush and ink technique, but also included Western philosophy and art in his studies. His artistic breakthrough came in his series of Hong Kong landscapes and in his Zen paintings. A representative work of Zen painting is Zhuangzi (1974).
