Samues Leung graduated from Macquarie University. He has been worked in Marketing Management for over 20 years. He established the State-of-the-Arts Gallery in 2003. Since 2009, he has been actively involved in the field of contemporary visual arts. In 2013, he pursued studies in Western painting at both LaSalle College of the Arts and Nanyang Academy of Fine Art in Singapore. In 2016, he obtained a Master’s degree in Fine Art (MFA) with distinction from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT).

And he also continue his art-making activities by participating the Residency Programs in Tokyo, Venice and New York from 2016~2023.
Samues has delved into the realm of art-making practices, seeking inspiration from the captivating beauty of Japanese aesthetics and the profound philosophy of Zen. In his exploration, he has embraced the concept of impermanence, infusing it into the creative process within the context of fine art. His artistic journey has led him to employ a diverse range of materials, crafting intricate paintings and sculptures that reflect both the wonders of nature and his personal experiences. Through thorough research during his study of MFA course, Samues has delved into Zen-inspired notions such as Wabi-sabi and Minimalism. These concepts embody the essence of simplicity, redundancy, and the contemplation of solitude. He skilfully expresses these ideas through various mediums and contexts, employing a multitude of processes and materials to their utmost potential.
Samues’ artistic prowess has been showcased in exhibitions held in Tokyo, South Korea, Singapore, Melbourne, and Hong Kong. His works have captivated audiences, offering them a glimpse into his unique interpretation of Japanese aesthetics and Zen philosophy.
Presently, Samues holds the position of an Visual Art Consultant. Throughout his career, he has successfully executed various projects in Hong Kong and mainland China, encompassing public spaces within real estate properties, commercial buildings, and Government Departments. Notably, he has gained recognition for five prominent landscape sculptures that have become his signature works. One of his most notable achievements includes the creation of a large-scale permanent art installation titled “Fish-1989” for the Drainage Services Department in 2019 to celebrate its 30th anniversary. Additionally, he was entrusted with the responsibility of designing and constructing an architectural sculpture in large scale of “Glory Star” for a new residential development project commissioned by the Hong Kong Housing Authority. This remarkable sculpture was unveiled in mid-2021, serving as a symbol of celebration and the illustrious history of the Hong Kong film industry.
