Vivian Ho (何博欣)
Born in the 90s and bred in Hong Kong, and a graduate of Wesleyan University, Vivian Ho is an emerging artist who is fast-gaining attention in Hong Kong. Her growing body of work has shown a particular appetite for magnifying everyday moments and injecting them vivid surreal impressions to challenge the convention definition of beauty. Vivian’s practice consists of figurative oil paintings, pastel and indian ink on paper, as well as mixed media works. Her works capture and re-invent insignificant regular life moments of Hong Kong to invite additional sensual dimensions.
She has held multiple solo and group shows in the United States, Italy, Shanghai, Beijing and Hong Kong. Many of her works are held in private collections around the globe. Her latest Solo Exhibition “We Could Start Over” at Artify Gallery Hong Kong has been extremely well-received. Camilla Hewitson, the director of Affordable Art Fair HK 2014, named Vivian as one of the top 5 young artist to watch.
While experimenting with a wide range of materials, Vivian has been actively collaborating with different brands and medias, including TVB, Nike, Origins, HKIFF, HKREP, Obscura, HSBC and NowTV.
Currently, she is working on upcoming solo exhibitions and a public art installation commission by Hong Kong MTR Corporation.
