chiu tak hak
Since their 1995 introduction in the United States, the colorful store-fronts and moody Parisian streets of Chiu Tak Hak's paintings have captured the interest of diverse fine art collectors.

The appeal of Chiu Tak Hak’s paintings stems from their ability to engage the viewer’s imagination. Chiu Tak Hak purposefully selects as his subjects deserted cafes, boutiques, buildings and streets that strike a nostalgic chord. These are settings that have story to tell, but it is left to the viewer to write it.

A self-taught artist from Canton, China, Chiu Tak Hak originally gained recognition in Hong Kong for his abstract works. Following his 1972 move to Paris, the artist began experimenting with different styles, finally settling into realism in the early 1980s. This style allowed him to preserve, at least on canvas, what he describes as Paris' "dying past." Prior to his U.S. debut, these paintings gained Chiu Tak Hak recognition at exhibits in Germany, Paris and Hong Kong, along with top prizes at several of France’s premiere salons.
