Unleashing one’s imagination

His love for painting went way back, long before he was known for the stage name, Hoi Chiu. A chance encounter with sand painting on the internet one day opened up a whole new world for Hoi Chiu. “It simply unlocked my imagination.” He began with some sand and papers at home, and taught himself sand painting after the making a mess of the living room often. And out of the trials and errors, he found a way for himself.
