Kelen's (only recently commenced) work as a visual artist - in photography, ink and wash drawing/painting and in pseudo-calligraphic styles - has appeared in a number of on-line journals and web-sites, as cover illustrations for several books and in conference presentations, most recently at the Imaginal Regions Symposium at Gray's School of Art (Robert Gordon University), Aberdeen, U.K., sponsored by the U.K.'s Arts and Humanities Research Board.
Cross-media, cross-cultural and cross-genre endeavours are the hallmark of Kelen's aesthetic output and this interest in work ‘between' anticipated forms and cultural milieu makes Macao an ideal place for his art practice. Kelen has written a considerable body of poetry and prose fiction set in Macao and/or dealing with Macao related subject matter. He has also written and recorded a number of Macao themed multilingual songs, including the blues ballad ‘San Ma Lo' and a hymn to road safety, ‘You've got to make yourself big when you're crossing the road.' (The latter is in Cantonese, Portuguese, Putonghua and English.)
Cindy, Ng Sio leng was born in Macao in 1966. She studied etching for a few years around 1990, as a student of Bartholomeu dos Santos, who was the Head of Department of Etching in the Slade School of Fine Arts of London University; and Mr. James Wong was her mentor. A brief stay in London from 1993 to 1994 became a turning point in her life as an artist. She was advised by Mr. Bartolomeu dos Santos to visit the Research Office of the Gallery of Chinese Calligraphy and Painting at the British Museum, where she studied a rich collection of calligraphy and paintings, interpreting the moods of the works of scholar-painters, and learning about the influence of Taoism on Chinese aesthetics. This experience greatly enriched her later works.

Grace has held senior management positions in the international cosmetics industry, and started painting for pleasure in her leisure time. Her talent and creativity were self-learned until she was discovered by Professor Chan Hoi who was her mentor at the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Art where she graduated for her Master Degree.
Her extensive traveling and living in cities has provided a rich resource for her imagination and is the stimulation for a number of her projects. Her passion for life is reflected in her paintings through the use of bold, vibrant colours and very energetic brushstrokes.
