Fung Ming Sum graduated from Associate Degree of Visual Arts of College of International Education, Hong Kong Baptist University, in 2013. Studying in Academy of Visual Arts of Hong Kong Baptist University, from 2013 to 2015, Fung Ming Sum had engaged in courses like drawing, painting, Chinese calligraphy and seal, photography, sound and independent music video, enjoying and being skilled in art creation, making documentary and doing experiments.
Fung Ming Sum mainly focuses on creating paintings or photos. But because of the engagement and attempt on different media at school, the artist would like to search for the opportunities on mixing the concepts, theories or characteristics of different media on creating artworks, breaking the inherent or traditional boundaries that establish between the fields.
Fung Ming Sum is interested in exploring the horror and beauty in urban decay, or even in the ruins, showing how the broken objects, antiquated buildings or aged locations struggle under the wheel of the era.
While creating artworks, Fung Ming Sum not only emphasizes personal feelings toward the subject matters, but also tries to investigate the roles of the artwork, the creator and the actual world, trying to express a sense of scare and admiration in the pictorial surface, and illustrating the link between the three parties, through visualization.
