New Art Hong Kong: ArMe Chan, Uku Chan, Cassandra Lau, Vvzela Kook

4 artists of New Art Hong Kong organized by Roger Lin Studio and tumtum.hk are going to present some of their works at Hong Kong Contemporary, bringing brand new dimensions to local arts.






Inspired by multiple "invisible" flâneurs on streets, ArMe Chan has created numerous neo-pop artworks with humour and casualness, which greatly differ from the highly political, critical and depressive artworks found in Hong Kong's art scene.


With a strong focus on local space issues, Cassandra Lau voices her thoughts and feelings about her city using a rich mix of media as a young artist living in a confined flat.




As a loyal follower of painting, Uku Chan’s psycho-expressionistic works vividly portray deep frustration and tension from life with colours while emancipating himself from reality.



Embracing both audio and visual elements, Vvzela Kook produces cutting edge new media artworks influenced by steampunk and psychoanalysis, with her unique interpretations of traditional Chinese beliefs.
