"Hongy" was born in Yungaburra Far North Queensland and raised from the age of 5 yo by both his parents in Cairns (FNQ). Hongy is of Indigenous and Chinese heritage. A self taught Artist, Hongy discovered his talent and embraced his cultural heritage as he was travelling around Australia upon his retirement as an underground miner for over 20 years. Hongy's cultural background is expressed through his paintings. He loves the use of vibrant colour which reflects his journey through the Deserts of the Northern Territory and his Coastal and Rainforest upbringing in Queensland. He also creates, explores and incorporates aboriginal folklore into his paintings using dot art in a contemporary style. Hongy's artworks are extremely affordable as he is mindful of the power of education through story telling and the sharing of cultural history and providing the opportunity for all ages to be able to afford and appreciate an original piece of art for your home or business.
