Chan Ping Tim

Known as the father of Hong Kong ceramic education, Chan Ping Tim (1937-) is a veteran sculptor, ceramicist and educator. The retrospective presents a range of his work and explores the early years of local art education and its vision through his personal archive of photographs and old documents, which shows his contribution, experience and connections as a local art educator. While appreciating the artist's work, the public also has the opportunity to learn more about the history of art education in Hong Kong.

Chan graduated from the Grantham Training College in 1959. He furthered his studies in sculpture at the Ravensbourne College of Art from 1963 to 1965 on a British Council scholarship. After returning to Hong Kong, he taught at the Grantham College of Education (1968-1988) and Northcote College of Education (1988-1994). He was the head of the Department of Art and Design of Northcote until his retirement. As an artist-teacher, Chan has been active in the Hong Kong art scene and the field of art education.

His devotion to art after his retirement is even more evident as he organised several solo exhibitions in ceramics, relief and sculpture. His protégés include Rosanna Li Wei Han, Anissa Fung Siu Han and Ma So Mui, all of whom acclaimed Hong Kong artists.
