「P on P」藝術創作者李楚洳(Samantha Li)，是香港典型土生土長的新一代，畢業於香港大學藝術系，亦是「賽馬會鯉魚門創意館」其中一位首批培養的年輕藝術工作者，對藝術創作擁有無比熱誠。
Samantha和許多年輕人一樣，對周圍事物充滿好奇和想象，她想到了把自己最喜愛的攝影和油畫糅合起來，將鏡頭拍攝下來的「現實」影像，按自己內心的想像，利用電腦技術加以處理，再嘗試配上油畫的「抽象及寫實」等不同手法描繪，以表達自己的觀點及對事物的感覺，希望別人能從「相中有畫」和「畫中有相」的意境中，分享到作者的內心世界。一系列首創的「P on P」（Painting on Photo）的藝術作品，就此誕生。
Samantha Li, the creator of “P on P” art form, graduated with a major in Fine Arts from the University of Hong Kong. With passionate love for art, she is also one of the first artists from the Hong Kong Jockey Club Lei Yue Mun Plus.
Since her early life, Samantha has shown great enthusiasm in literature and arts, especially painting and photography. Other than different provinces in the mainland China, she has also visited many countries around the world. The travelling experience is a real eye-opener for her – after viewing the colourful world with different cultures, she is inspired by the relationship between human and animals, and determined to capture the scenes with her cameras and brushes.
Just like many young people, Samantha sees the world with curiosity and imagination. She then comes up with an idea to combine photography and painting, the two artistic media that she has most affection in, into a new art form – painting with imagination on the real-life photos after digital processing – with a hope that people can share her thoughts through her artistic prospects. Thereupon, the original “P on P” (Painting on Photo) series of artworks is created.
The “P on P” artworks were successively exhibited in the City Hall, Jockey Club Lei Yue Mun Plus, Gallery by the Harbour, Hong Kong Cultural Centre, and Hong Kong Central Library Exhibition Gallery, and Louvre Museum at Paris, receiving widespread concern.
