YEUNG HOK TAK



YEUNG HOK TAK

Hong Kong | B.1970

Bold, vivid and eccentric, Yeung Hok Tak paints his canvases with masculine sensitivity in a distinctly local flavour.

Tak's works explore the Hong Kong identity and recall collective memories. Painting subjects that are uniquely Hong Kong, such as public estates and landscapes of the country parks, through his endearing eyes, celebrating the rich community culture while bringing a certain sense of nostalgia in his canvases.

A Hong Kong native, Tak began his artistic career publishing comics in the Cockroach Quarterly comics magazine in 1998.  In 2002, he published his critically acclaimed debut graphic novel, How Blue was my Valley, gaining local and international recognition; a French version was subsequently published in 2007. He then published two illustration series, Pyschic's Fairy Tales in 2006 and Cool Blooded Theatre in 2009, which both were met with immense popularity in Hong Kong and Taiwan. In 2013, Tak was invited to participate in a joint exhibition Meltak Show, curated by Yoshitomo Nara. Other than painting, Tak had also lent his artistic talents to other cultural outlets. In 2010, he took on the role of Art Director in McDull: The Pork of Music, a film in the renowned Hong Kong animation series. The artist currently lives and works in Hong Kong.
