Pong Tong (b. 1994, Hong Kong) is a young Hong Kong based artist who has previously shown work in the Hong Kong Affordable Art Fair 2016 and First Take exhibition at Galerie Perrotin in 2013. Tong, mostly working in painting, reveals the sarcasms and ironies of everyday matters. His paintings aim to reveal the ridiculousness of social and industry behavior.
Amy Ng (b. 1991, Macau) grew up in Hong Kong. Ng recently assisted in the installation of Sundew, an installation for Art Central Hong Kong by artist, Elaine Yan Ling Ng. She has worked with design, drawing, and advertisement at a local game company. Ng’s recent work involves manipulating a range of material through elemental processes. She facilitates sculptural and painted works, which are rooted in Chinese aesthetic tradition.
YiJeong Koh (b. 1991 Korea) has lived in Korea, U.S., China and Hong Kong. She has assisted Elaine Yan Ling Ng in the installation of Sundew for Art Central, and was part of a group who illustrated the world’s largest shoe from Superga. Koh’s work deals with ideas of meditation, repetition and concentration through drawing. She works with ordinary, everyday materials such as stationery to connect her audience to the familiar and the everyday.
Sophie Cyzewski (b. 1994, U.S.) has participated in various group exhibitions in U.S., France and Hong Kong such as Project: Liminal, at Indigo Sky Gallery which was featured in Savannah Art Informer’s Top 10 Art Shows of 2015, Landfall at the Gutstein Gallery, Goodbye-Hello at Non-Fiction Gallery. Cyzewski’s current body of work grapples with the tension between public and private through the use of printed symbols, to convey an internal dialogue in public space.
Jason Kam (b. 1994, Hong Kong) has participated in various group shows in U.S. such as Alexander Ink (Alexander Hall), Design Hope Art Show (St. Andrew Savannah), and Convo Club Art Exposition (Late Church Savannah). He has also been a featured artist in ART-IT presented by Hong Kong Contemporary Art Foundation (HOCA). Kam explores the constructs of making and experiencing art by expanding the use of alternative media, audience interaction and the artistic notion of space and time.
