FEATURED ARTIST: PHIL AKASHI – HONG KONG
Phil Akashi is a Belgian-born artist based in Hong Kong who explores and reinvents the functionality of traditional Asian seals with a broad range of media. Fascinated with the aesthetic of Asian characters and passionate about Asian seals, Akashi has built his artistic identity with an Asian essence. His arts practice uses the power of language to question the contemporary world around him. He chose the pseudonym "Akashi" meaning "bright stone" to express his love for the Japanese culture. While in China, he created a Chinese name - "涛程" meaning "big wave journey".
The artist has participated in solo and group exhibitions in Belgium, China, Hong Kong and the USA. His works are held in private collections worldwide and have been featured in international publications such as the Guggenheim, MoMA Talks, Artribune, and Rolling Stone.
Represented by Fabrik Gallery, Hong Kong.
FEATURED ARTIST AT THE SPRING EDITION: WILLIE COLE - USA
Willie Cole (b. 1955 Somerville, USA) is best known for assembling and transforming ordinary discarded domestic appliances and hardware such as irons, high-heeled shoes and bicycle parts into imaginative and powerful works of art. Through the repetitive use of single objects in multiples, Cole' assembled sculptures acquire a transcending metaphorical meaning, becoming a critique of consumerism, sexuality and female identity in pop culture.
Cole received his BA in Fine Arts in 1976 from the School of Visual Arts in New York. He is the 2006 Winner of the David C. Driskell Prize, the first national award to honour and celebrate contributions to the field of African-Amercian art and art history. The Museum of Modern Art and The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the National Gallery in Washington, DC, and the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes in Havana, Cuba all house some of his most important works.
Represented by Wilie Cole himself, USA.
