Ho Sin Tung

b. 1986, Hong Kong

Ho Sin Tung started learning painting in Cultural Corner, founded by Gaylord Chan. Having graduated from Immanuel Lutheran College in 2005 and the Department of Fine Arts of Chinese University in Hong Kong in 2008, she is now a full-time artist.

Her two-dimensional work predominantly uses pencil, graphite and watercolour in combination with found and ready-made images – including the use of stickers, maps, charts, rubber-stamps and timelines. She had her solo exhibition “Icarus Shrugged” at Hanart TZ Gallery, Hong Kong (2015) and participated in SeMA Mediacity Biennale Seoul (2014) and the 9th Shanghai Biennale (2012).

Ho nourishes a passion for cinema and many of her works are inspired by movies, or by her  personal experience of watching a movie. Drawn to horror scenarios, she believes in ghosts and expresses some of her deep fears in her drawings. Her representation of human bodies is therefore at the edge of reality, reflecting her fantasies, pains and obsessions.

Ho currently lives and works in Hong Kong.
