Travellers staying in Hong Kong hotels will soon be able to visit an exhibition showcasing Chinese paintings and calligraphy by Au Ho-nien.

The Free and Unfettered display will open at the Hong Kong Heritage Museum on 15 September and run until 17 June 2013.

Born in 1935 in what is now the city of Wuchuan, Au displayed talent as an artist in his early years and went on to become a key figure in the third generation of the Lingnan school of painting.

He learned to paint under the tutelage of Chao Shao-an after moving to Hong Kong in 1950 and has since developed a body of work that includes depictions of landscapes, human figures and animals.

The forthcoming exhibition at the Hong Kong Heritage Museum will explore Au's artistic career and accomplishments by presenting a selection of his paintings and calligraphy works dating as far back as the 1950s.

Visitors to the attraction can also see a range of permanent displays featuring everything from ancient artefacts to items offering an insight into the world of Cantonese opera.
