六合彩 | MARK6

was a pop-up exhibition featuring six Hong Kong artists, who conceived large scale, immersive works of art in the ground floor space at Yat Fu Lane. Each artist took over a fragment of the space, creating work that traverses floor, wall and ceiling, producing micro-environments that envelop the spectator.

六合彩 or MARK6, typically refers to the Hong Kong lottery but when broken down means “six, together, color” giving an alternative meaning to the name and highlighting where we choose to place our bets.

由六位來自不同界別藝術家舉行的一個大規模,
大膽設想的臨時展覽,將於日富里的地面空間展岀其藝術作品。每個藝術家均會利用室內的每一個空間,創造岀一個轉化地面,牆壁,天花,為突出室內環境的空間。

六合彩通常指香港彩票,當分開拆解後,意思是 「六位藝術家結合創作彩繪」,給這個名字添加另一個含義。

KristoperH

a.k.a. Kristopher Ho, was born in Hong Kong in 1986 and moved to Blackpool, UK at age 12.  Kristopher returned to Hong Kong after graduating from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in 2009.

Focused in the realm of detailed illustrations and murals, Kristopher’s work ranges from sophisticated whimsical landscapes to monochromatic, abstract creatures of imagination, illustrating objects with delicate intricacy, and inviting the viewers to rediscover the possibilities of work made with the simplest tools: marker and paper. Kristopher’s work can be divided into two categories: “HOME” and “SELF”. “HOME” focuses on whimsical illustrations and murals of imaginary houses and landscapes, while being playful and uplifting. “SELF” shows a darker side, a deep exploration and rediscovery of personal space and individual existence. “HOME” and “SELF” are the manifestations of Kristopher as an artist, an illustrator and human being.

KristopherH又名 Kristopher Ho。1986年生於香港。他12歲時搬到英國Blackpool,並於2009年畢業於倫敦的中央聖馬丁藝術與設計學院。

他的作品主要為體現細節的插畫及壁畫,題材由異想天開的精緻風景,到單色抽象的自創想象物。他描繪的物品錯綜複雜,帶領觀者探究如何以最簡單的工具——普通marker與白紙,創作出無限的可能性。他的作品主要分為兩類:「家」和「自我」。「家」主要是描繪想象中的怪誕房屋與景色,玩味十足、活力向上;而「自我」則較為黑暗,關乎更深層次的自我認知及個人存在價值。這兩個方向的創作,是Kristopher自己作為一位藝術家、插畫家及人類本身的個性表現。

Sinic Choy

SINIC, a Hong Kong-born graffiti and street artist, started his career in 2003. After 10 years with unique understanding and experience in graffiti and street art, SINIC has become unfettered by the frame of American-style graffiti and has established his own distinct personal style.

As a professional artist and event organiser, SINIC has contributed substantially to the exposure of Asian graffiti on the international stage.  SINIC created Wall Lords, the top street art and graffiti event in Asia at the time, featuring the most influential graffiti artists from all over the world participating. SINIC was also on the team that produced INVASIAN, an Asian focused graffiti magazine, and 1AGN a sub-culture guidebook, both of which were sold globally.

In recent years, SINIC’s projects have won global recognition, leading to his invitation to events around the world. “On The Road,” a documentary series followed him and his crew-mates while they painted their way from Yunnan to Tibet over 50 days. This film was the first of its kind in the realm of Chinese graffiti documentaries. For SINIC, traveling inspires a deeper level in his art, closer to spiritual practice, rather than a pure quest of visual art. To this day, SINIC is still trying to experience “heart-quakes” through constant travel.

SINIC是個出生於香港的塗鴉/街頭藝術創作者。從2003年展開其創作生涯,經過十年間對塗鴉/街頭藝術的獨特見解和體驗,跳脫出美式塗鴉的框架,樹立出鮮明的個人風格。

作為職業藝術家兼活動策劃者,SINIC先後策劃及參與各大型有關街頭文化的創作及展覽,發動了「戰牆」亞洲塗鴉比賽,邀請全球最具影響力的塗鴉藝術家一同參與,成為當時亞洲首屈一指的街頭活動。同年參與製作 INVASIAN 亞洲塗鴉雜誌及1AGN次文化指南行銷全球,其中染指短片製作、平面設計、品牌開發等多元發展,令亞洲塗鴉得到國際性的曝光,影響深遠。

近年SINIC的企劃逐漸獲得大眾的認同和肯定,不斷受邀到世界各地參與各種活動。其中以在路塗系列計劃最廣為人知,從雲南到西藏的50天邊走邊塗鴉,該計劃開創了華人的塗鴉紀錄短片先河,啓發以追求比視覺藝術更深層接近靈修的旅行,突顯大自然環境與人造風景的關係。SINIC時至今日仍不斷透過旅行體驗能夠震撼心靈的人和事。
