chinese painting cherry blossom

** post updated on 22nd of September 2015**

As my mum was in Hong Kong last week, she was looking for some Chinese calligraphy and painting supplies. She lives in France and supplies over there are very expensive!


Here are some of her beautiful paintings of peonies, grapes and bird:

I have looked around in Hong Kong before but did not discover any good place for Chinese calligraphy and painting supplies.

We found on the internet a shop address in Sheung Wan and she had a look.

The shop’s name is Man Luen Choon

It is located 2/F, Harvest Building, 29-35 Wing Kut Street, Central.

They actually happen to have a large selection of supplies:

– brushes

– papers

– ink (bottled, stick, slab)

– painting colors

– mats

– Chinese painting books & DVDs

My mum found all the supplies she needed in the shop, though it was a bit difficult to find the place itself in the first place!

I can imagine it is not the only good place in Hong Kong for Chinese calligraphy and painting supplies, so feel free to share other places in the comments below!

I have discovered one more bookstore to find Chinese painting and calligraphy supplies:

Chung Hwa Book Co. 

450 Nathan Road, Yau Ma Tei, Kowloon

The store offers a large selection of Chinese painting books, brushes and papers.




As always, if you know other places in Hong Kong, please share in the comments below to help other Chinese painting lovers!
