PACOWHY 1982: Drawing, painting and collage
Pacowhy First Hong Kong Solo Exhibition

Lucie Chang Fine Arts is pleased to announce the representation of Pacowhy (Seoul, South Korea), the first solo exhibition in Hong Kong. An international graffiti and trend artist will take over the gallery with an installation of 18 pieces of new works.

 

In these collections, his creative inspiration comes from his life and work. The displays are based on the theme of Chinese zodiac signs of this year (Tiger). Through paintings, he depicts his personal emotions and experiences. By working on different series of paintings, Pacowhy explores themes like “the tiger of 2022”, “find your identity” and “the cow of 2021” , using words and pictures to present in a diversified way, on his way to finding a sense of personal identity as an artist. The works include the observation of his feelings during the pandemic and meditate on the relationship between self and one another.

 

Focusing on Disney's old animations, Paco also has a keen interest in films, especially include cartoon images of classic characters. He developed an extraordinary style with multi- techniques such as graffiti, painting, and collage on canvas. His works often combine well-known popular images, while retaining many original traces of painting on the canvas. Familiar yet diverse tiger characters always appear in his works, a series that represents the work like retro graffiti street art. The overall color tone of his work is shabby, faded, and ends in dark tones. The overall picture is vivid and interesting, with the aim of comforting audiences.

 

His work is like a personal diary, a constant pleasure to read, while also having an impact and resonance with the audience. Among the various works, Pacowhy hopes to reflect the commonality of humans with the tiger as the representative animal of the year and record our most authentic, down-to-earth daily life through various methods.

PACOWHY 1982:繪畫,素描與拼貼

 

Lucie Chang Fine Arts 欣然呈獻展覽「PACOWHY 1982:繪畫,素描與拼貼」。Pacowhy作為國際塗鴉和潮流藝術家的首次香港個展,全面展示他近年來的創作脈絡,展覽包含了18件的全新畫作。

 

出生於韓國首爾。他的創作靈感都來源於他的生活和工作,當中展出的作品以今年的12生肖為主題,當中繪畫了他對自己的個人情緒,也是對當下所經歷的時代記錄。作品包括了在疫情中,藝術家沉思關於群體與自我之間的關系,將感受到的感情和想法用文字和圖片記錄下來,以多元化方式呈現,尋找身為藝術家的個人認同感。

 

他對迪士尼的老動畫也有著濃厚興趣。畫中包括經典卡通角色,並以塗鴉、繪畫、布面拼貼等多種形式,發展了一套獨立的創作系統。通過這⼀系列畫作探究,他探索了《2022年的老虎》﹑《尋找你的身份》和《2021的牛年》等不同的系列。作品中出現了熟悉多樣的老虎角色,像是在復古的街頭藝術中塗鴉老頭一樣表現作品的系列。整體的色感是破舊褪色的以暗色調收尾。

 

他的作品就像個人日記,有著不斷的閱讀樂趣,同時也產生了影響和共鳴,可以讓觀眾心情愉悅。在眾多的作品中,Pacowhy希望以老虎作為年度代表動物來體現人類的共性,通過各種方式記錄我們最真實、最接地氣的日常生活。
