Martin Lever - Chinese name Li Wah - has lived, studied and worked in Hong Kong on and off for nearly 40 years. One of the biggest inspirations in his life is this unique city he calls home.
His artwork has been exhibited in a number of solo shows in Hong Kong, the UK and the Middle East. His work adorns the walls of private collectors, and commissioned pieces hang in corporate lobbies from Wheelock & Wharf to the McKinsey corporation to Patton Boggs Law.
His approach to painting is refreshingly simple: he closes his eyes, then paints what he sees. Using striking contrasts of colour and lighthearted observational touches, he creates powerful impressionist images that celebrate the world around us through a new lens.
Beyond art, his creative work has been recognised around the world with countless advertising industry awards. And his acclaimed series of children’s books – The BogeyBugz – is helping fuel young imaginations.
