Although Foo Chee San has made many works in oil, woodblock print and lacquer art over the decades, it is in his bounty of Chinese ink paintings that one can perceive his commitment to his art and the simple life. He depicts the serenity of watching s ked by a makeshift port, with colours that depict the vintage of the scenery.
