About the work
Through large scale oil paintings, Vivian Ho composes grand canvases with emotionally evoking colours to magnify everyday moments, injecting them with vivid surreal impressions. She uses magical realism to reimagine local subjects on the streets, creating a coalescing of exterior splendor and interior depth.
