Posted on 12th Jul 2010 @ 1:27 PMHin started drawings like most Hong Kong children learning from comics and manga, at the same time receiving Chinese traditional watercolour painting lesson. After several trips to China (Beijing, Yunnan, Shangri-la etc.) and experienced the colours of his cultural roots such as ancient buildings, emperor houses, temples and Ethnic Minorities villages, Hin became more assured for his use of colours. Utilizing everyday objects from buttons, zippers, woods, toys, candies, down to twigs and sand, HIN merges daily experiences with abstract visions. These textures collide in a cacophony of colours forming 3-dimensional images into what can he would call sculpted paintings. Like a shaman's conjuring the invisible world into the visible, HIN injects life into forgotten and disenfranchised giving them a voice in the visible world of his art. The work confidently pokes at different bubbles of socio-political norms and is full of questions. As there is very little pretence and the paintings are always very accessible and open to the viewer.
