Ho Kwun-ting

1988, Hong Kong

Introduction

Ho, born in 1988 in Hong Kong, studied in the United Kingdom for five years, then returned to Hong Kong and received a BA in Fine Arts from Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2013. His creations tend to use black outlines to sketch daily life objects or images from memory. He attempts to apply a Gongbi drawing technique on his sculptures thus transposing the strokes into a 3-dimensional space. Ho creates an ethereal form that conjures the old missing memories, beliefs and endless imaginations from his childhood.
