Hong Kong | B. 1968

A forgoer in the advertising industry in Hong Kong, Eric So is a principal figure in the local art and culture scene. Known for his redefinition of action figurines, So is a pioneer in creating ‘Designer Toy’.

The figurines are painted with realistic engraving techniques and unique styles of cartoon design, uniting art with ‘toy’, refining what was once considered as non-art. In So’s creation, he tries to add the element of business into art, using art to smoothen the hard edges of commerce and the rationality it brings; just like the Chinese yin and yang theory – acting as an equalizer and creating an elegant coexistence.
