From England to Hong Kong! The multi-DTA award winner Jon-Paul Kaiser hits HONG KONG for his solo art exhibition at Amaz by Lokianno Gallery. “Reveries” sees a new chapter in the JPK work. Using only his own sculptures and figures he explores the theme of nostalgia; presented by surreal characters and scenes, each depicting as well as subverting classic art tropes. Influences on this selection of work include history, fine art, and colonialism as well as looking at identity. It’s his first time in Hong Kong so be gentle with him. Get that selfie poses ready JPK here. JPK is ready to bless the space of Amaz Gallery and wants to meet his fans and get ready for this weekend as JPK will be there in person.
Renowned in the art and designer toy fields, initially for his stark black and white palette and high attention to detail. Over the past few years this has developed into treating the sculptural form like a canvas; “tattooing” intricate scenes and narratives as body art of the forms of his figures.
JPK 是一位屢獲殊榮的英國藝術家，在藝術和設計師玩具領域享有盛譽，最初是因為他鮮明的黑白色調和對細節的處理而引起關注。 在過去的幾年裡，這風格已經發展成為像對待畫布一樣對待雕塑， “tattooing” 複雜的場景和對人體藝術的敘述成為他設計雕塑的基礎。 “Reveries 遐想”見證了藝術家作品的新篇章。 他僅使用自己的雕塑和人物來探索懷舊的主題； 由超現實的人物和場景呈現，每一個都描繪並顛覆了經典的藝術比喻。 對作品選擇的影響包括歷史、美術和殖民主義以及對身份的審視。
Below is a little teaser of REVERIES.
