At the 13th lecture of the Meeting the Intellectuals in the Spring Hills Lecture Series, amazed by the ingenious idea of "New-Orientalism Aesthetics", we are now looking out through a unique window to a new world, opened by Mr. Tim Yip.

On November 10, world renowned visual artist, film and stage art director and costume designer, Mr. Tim Yip, gave us 2018's last but one of the best lectures at the "Meeting the Intellectuals in the Spring Hills" Lecture Series, revealing the modern spirit of the "New-Orientalism Aesthetics".

Rowing a boat of stories gently down the river of his life journey, we were exposed to what he explored and how he grew up in the pursuit of art.

Those stories which were interesting but true acquainted us with the concept of New-Orientalism Aesthetics. It is a common understanding that oriental beauty equals to tradition, which has tight bonds with the past and a long impact on the present. In his words, New-Orientalism evidently confirms the notion of embracing both tradition and modernity, and makes an effort to find the true meaning and the value of existence to bring together eastern classics and western culture.

After his talk, many members of the audience bought autographed copies of Tim Yip's book: The Creative Aesthetics of Tim Yip: Manifold

Remarkably, he shared about his perception and understanding on "New-Orientalism Aesthetics": "Leave the heavy burden, set the aesthetics free, let it be in no control nor disturbed; we just settle down and see, to feel all the goodness inside." It is indeed the "probing mode" which has combined modernity and the oriental aesthetics.
