Herman Kwok-Hung Lee is a professional member of the National Association for the Visual Arts, Australia. He is an Ikebana artist, photographer and writer. His art motto is “Seeing the richness in simplicity.” Herman was born and grew up in Hong Kong. He was educated in Taiwan.

Herman moved to Sydney in 1990, and then he studied Ikebana from Sensei Yoshiro Umemura. He is a member of the Ikebana International. Herman was also fully trained in western floral art in Sydney. He has won nine awards at the Sydney Easter Show floral art sections.

Herman’s solo album Golden Wind New Millennium Floral Art is a multi-award winning book. He is also a contributor of articles in the Bulletin of National Museum of History, Taiwan; FLORA International magazine, UK; Florist magazine, Taiwan. The articles reflect the artwork and art philosophy of Herman. His artwork was proudly featured in the newspaper LianHeZaoBao of Singapore in 2012.

Two exhibitions of his floral art photography have been held when Herman was staying in Singapore. His solo exhibition was held in the Japanese Association Singapore in 2005. Another exhibition was collaborated with the Ikebana International of Singapore in 2013. He thinks it was an excellent opportunity to work with other fellow Ikebana artists at the Japan Creative Centre Singapore.

Herman considers the plants as his partners performing together, rather than elements for creating a piece of artwork. He spends much time observing and appreciating different features of varying plants in nature. Herman’s recent series of floral art photography has been a rewarding journey working with eucalyptus, which are native to Australia. The Chinese literati painting style that is reflected in his work evokes the feeling deep in his heart. Herman’s floral art photography is a unique form of art which expresses his relationship with nature and his appreciation of different culture experience.
