Larger Than Life: Mural Dreamscapes - A Teaching Artist's Retrospective

As a teaching artist for more than 25 years and a muralist for 18 of them, I consider myself to be a good source of "archived" experiences that I can share with others, who might find them beneficial. Like all of life's experiences, some of my anecdotal encounters might come off as amusing or, conversely, fraught with emontional turmoil. Kong Ho's inclusive and impressive into community murals and the role of teaching artist can be divided into two parts. In the first part, the reader is introduced to the founding history and early community mural projects of Hong Kong Mural Society, co-founded by Kong Ho in Hong Kong in 1997. The second half of this book presents the impact of community mural on community in terms of educational, social, cultural, historical and technological contexts through his Fulbright Scholarship in teaching mural painting in Bulgaria and his recent community mural projects in Brunei Darussalam.

Preface is written by Nick Jaffe, chief editor of Teaching Artist Journal and coauthor of Teaching Artist Handbook.

A Stroke in Time: An Artist's Memoir of Kong Ho

As a teaching artist for almost three decades, Prof. Kong Ho recalls his art experience in the form of a memoir. This book explores his retrospective study into his transcendental paintings and why he chose to write a personal memoir. This book is divided into two parts. In the first part, Ho presents the reasons behind writing a narrative memoir derived from his art making story and nostalgic feelings. The second half of this book discusses the influence of a Taoist-Buddhist perspective on his art as well as the tracing of his art awakening experiences. Ho's insights into his spiritual art and the meaning of writing a personal memoir are unique because he presents them as academic artistic research. The aim of this artistic research is meant to highlight the value and impact of a personal memoir on an individual is artistic endeavours. An artist’s memoir, like an artist’s statement, which elaborates the intent of individual artist’s work. The memoir presents the inner thoughts of the artist. The narrative aspect of memoir is drawn directly from the memory of individual. This book will also examine how individuals constantly reconstruct their memories when writing a memoir.
