Prof. Kong Ho

Kong Ho utilizes his background as an artist trained in both Chinese and Western painting to teach art as an Assistant Professor of Art at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, Pennsylvania. Born and raised in Hong Kong, Ho attended Texas Tech University in the U.S. where he earned his M.F.A. degree in 1994. Always looking for new ways to inform the public of the educational benefits of art, Ho devotes his time in mural art and teaching. Besides, Ho also paints works of art in his studio that are of a more personal nature. Ho derives much of his imagery for his work from his cultural heritage, and his interest in mathematics and nature. His multi-layering of symbols creates a dynamic surface that contrasts forms, texture, and color. The resulting image instills a sense of visual tension and meditative quality, integrating the concepts of order and disorder.
