Lai Yuk Hay 黎毓熙 (1909-1982)- Master Lai was born in Xing Ning, in the province of Guangdong in 1909, and spent his early years in Hang Zhou National Art School (now China National Academy of Fine Art), where he tutored under the great masters, Lin Feng Mian 林風眠 and Pan Tian Shou 潘天壽 . Another famous painter, Li Keran studied in the same class. Other legendary painters like Wu Guan Zhong also graduated from the academy in later years.
After graduation, Master Lai devoted himself to a life-long career of art education. He taught at Guangxi Teachers' Training College, Shanghai School of Art and Xin Hua School of Art in China. After arriving in Hong Kong in 1959, he was appointed lecturer of the Department of Art at the New Asian College and later the Chinese University. In the last years of his life, he privately tutored students at his studio in Hong Kong.
Master Lai devoted his entire life to art and was never in pursuit of fame or wealth. Despite his large volume of works, he seldom held exhibitions or offered his paintings for sale. The rare exhibitions he held were at the Chinese University in Hong Kong, Tiki Art Gallery of Victoria, BC, Canada, and University of Berkeley and San Francisco University in America where his works were collected by the San Francisco Museum.
