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.
