Phil Akashi

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. His “Rings on Fire” series explores the institution of marriage – Akashi wants viewers to question the meaning of marriage and its effect on happiness. To do this, he rejuvenates the functionality of the Double Happiness character "囍” commonly used in China as a decoration and symbol of marriage.
