JPS Gallery / Art Central 2024 ( Booth A11 )

JPS Gallery will showcase a breathtaking display of artworks by a remarkable lineup of local and international artists at Art Central 2024. Celebrating the artistic talent from around the world, the gallery’s booth located at the Chung Dim section (Booth A11) will feature a spectacular collection of newly created pieces by critically acclaimed artist’s Wilson Shieh (HK) and Richard Woods (UK) as well as dynamic and cutting-edge presentations by leading contemporary artists Kila Cheung (HK) and Okokume (ES), among others.

One installation that is sure to capture visitors’ attention is the creation by British contemporary artist Richard Woods. Renowned for his architectural installations characterised by cartoon-like decorative surfaces showcased across Europe, Woods will be debuting his first large-scale installation in Hong Kong with a brand new site-specific Holiday Home specially designed for this year’s fair. Far removed from reality, Woods’ Holiday Home installations never had real windows, glass, or an accessible front door until now. This installation offers a thrilling prospect for visitors to witness the imaginative works of this skilled artist in a fresh and unparalleled manner. Attendees of the fair will be the first ones ever to enter the previously off-limits house and uncover a stunning secret that artist Woods has concealed for years.

Participating Artists

About Afa Annfa (b.1983, Hong Kong)

Afa Annfa is one of the emerging stars in the local art scene. Her works probe the complexities of human emotions and our connection with one another, capturing tensions between the human psyche and worldly materials. Afa approaches painting with her visceral meditation and observation that evoke strong sentiments. Her practice recalls the style of Japanese Ukiyo-e and irregular comics, depicting figures that seem to be fictional in an atmospheric environment yet remain substantial and grounded. Afa creates narratives and a unique language to manifest her inner visions

through images adapted from popular culture.

About b.wing (b.1972, Hong Kong)

Hong Kong artist b.wing’s visceral works are renowned for their intimate and frank portrayal of personal yet universally relevant experiences. Her reinventing approach to art and expansive visual practice encompasses painting, sculpture and hand stitching on canvas. Driven by the profound changes in her life in recent years, she began to further develop immersive installations involving ink calligraphy graffiti presented alongside her wistfully meditative works. Playing with the characters’ scale and composition, her childhood habit of scribbling on the school blackboard as a form of catharsis has now evolved into writing across exhibition walls in bold dripping ink, demonstrating a keen sense of graphical wordplay.

About Fabio Viscogliosi (b.1965, France)

Fabio Viscogliosi’s artistic practice is focused on painting and drawing inspired by different influences like comics, literature, burlesque cinema, and graphic design. His artworks are usually untitled or named after songs and quotes from his favourite books and movies. In Robert Bresson’s words, “Not to use two violins when one is enough,” best describe his works as an artist.

He has exhibited his works in places such as the Museum of Contemporary Art (Lyon), Museum of Decorative Arts (Paris), Galerie du Jour – Agnès B. (Paris), and more recently at the Intermediatheque in Tokyo. He has also published several novels in France, such as Apologie du Slow (Stock, 2014) and Mont-Blanc (Stock, 2011), which have been translated into Italian and Japanese.

About feebee (Born in Japan)

Feebee is a talented artist with a diverse portfolio of works. Her creations include a series of mythical beasts, which are based on legendary creatures but presented from a modern perspective. These works are characterised by a simplistic and flat style, which adds a contemporary touch to the traditional subject matter. Feebee also produces a series of portraits that focus on modern society and the people who inhabit it. In addition to painting, she also designs woodblock prints and art toys. Overall, Feebee's work demonstrates her exceptional creativity and versatility as an

artist and her ability to translate traditional themes into modern and engaging works of art.

About Jackie Lam a.k.a. 009 (b.1979, Hong Kong)

009 engages in the dialogue between reality and fantasy in a distinct international style, exploring philosophy and psychology topics while making frequent references to specific environments and locations. The artist’s love for comics is reflected in his endearingly eccentric works and in his artist name 009, which is a homage to the manga series Cyborg 009 by legendary manga artist Shotaro Ishinomori. He draws inspiration from Japanese manga, comics and European modernist movements, wielding these various methods to create emotionally saturated visuals manifested

through his vivid and vibrant works. There is a unique warmth to his work that is endearing, relatable, yet reflective to many.

About Kila Cheung (b.1986, Hong Kong)

A painter and sculptor, Kila Cheung is one of the emerging stars of the local art scene. His unique artistic oeuvre manifested his value for childishness, curiosity, and the courage to think outside of the box and dream big.

In 2017, Kila started creating his acclaimed series of wooden sculptures when he left home for Japan to begin his internship. His colourful works are sentimental and reflective with a hint of youthful rebellion, finding resonance with young collectors across Asia.

About Okokume (b.1985, Spain)

Okokume’s autobiographical works imbued with a bold conceptual edge are a raw and unfiltered representation of the artist’s unique universe. Despite its vibrant appearance, these works carry a subtle sense of unease and anguish. Her works of art are not mere ephemeral expressions meant for fleeting entertainment; instead, Okokume seeks to foster meaningful dialogue and heartfelt connection with every viewer on a soulful level.

About Peep (b.1991, Hong Kong)

Peep draws influence from her personal experience and reflects the world seen through her lens as a contemporary woman. The delicate and vibrant paintings of women reveal an unfettered utopia of female leisure and joy, at times featuring animals representing the feelings and stories of people from different walks of life. Her works are often infused with a dash of cuteness in hopes of bringing joy and positive energy to the chaos in this world.

About Ricko Leung (b.1987, Hong Kong)

Ricko Leung is a visual artist and independent curator living and working in Paris since 2014. Born and raised in Hong Kong, she draws inspiration from her multicultural identity and quotidian observations. Her artwork explores the complex relationship between personal experiences and wider social, political and natural environments, raising awareness and fostering dialogue about key issues that shape our society. Using various mediums such as ceramic, textile, photography and

text, her artwork delves into topics such as fear and control, cultural identity and post-colonialism, trauma and healing, as well as our relationship with nature.

About Richard Woods (b.1966, United Kingdom)

Richard Woods is well known for his architectural installations and re-surfacing of structures that propose an absurd twist on the cult of home improvement and DIY aesthetics. His works are characterised by cartoon-like decorative surfaces, bold patterns and vibrant colours.

Woods completed a major architectural commission in South Korea for the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, designed an interior for the Comme des Garçons’ flagship store in Osaka, orchestrated the mock Tudor overhaul of a private residence in New York and transformed the interior of Cary Grant’s former Hollywood residence for its new owner, Jeffrey Deitch. In 2003, his re-paving of a cloistered courtyard was the centrepiece of The Henry Moore Foundation’s

exhibition at the 50th International Venice Biennale of Art.

About Tse Yim On (b.1974, Hong Kong)

Tse Yim On is one of the most controversial and daring artists in his native hometown, Hong Kong. Growing up in the Generation-X era, Tse was heavily influenced by the rise of titillating, pseudo-violent cartoons, especially the heavily caricatured style of Japanese anime. Using a highly coloured lens of cartoonish visuals and a pop culture aesthetic, his art is satirical and wildly fantastic, unabashedly addressing societal and political issues through a uniquely quirky perspective.

About Wilson Shieh (b.1970, Hong Kong)

Wilson Shieh transfers his intricate Chinese fine-brush, gongbi, painting technique to his various media of choice, ranging from ink on silk, acrylic on canvas to paper cutout collage, filtering the traditional Chinese ink painting through a contemporary lens.

Best known for his figurative paintings, Wilson uses traditional brushwork techniques to depict themes and narratives derived from the popular culture of East Asia and his immediate environment in Hong Kong. In his acclaimed Architectural Series, he transforms the Hong Kong skyscrapers into figures donning tailor-made costumes.
