From Thursday, March 9, 2023, Lucie Chang Fine Arts is excited to present the Japanese graffiti pioneer artist, Snipe1’s solo exhibition“METAMANIAKS”. The first of our international artists to visit Hong Kong after the covid. The artist will showcase his fascinating graffiti paintings and sculptures. The following is the artist’s voice: Welcome to "METAMANIAKS", my first solo exhibition of the year, a powerful statement on the current state of the world, and a call to action for those who dare to listen. For those who are well-versed in the world of computers, games, and the internet, the concept of "META" is no stranger. But for the general public, it is a word and a concept that has been popularized by the founder of "FACEBxxK", Mr. Mark Zuckerberg (or as I like to call him, Mark SuckerFugs). On October 28, 2021, he changed the name of his
company to "META" and imprinted it on the brains of people all over the world.

Lucie Chang Fine Arts 3月9日,欣然呈現日本塗鴉藝術的先驅,Snipe1個展「METAMANIAKS」。這是疫情過後
我們畫廊首位拜訪香港的國際藝術家,展覽將呈現精選的獨特塗鴉畫作和雕塑。以下是藝術家的心聲:
歡迎來到“METAMANIAKS”,這是我今年的首次個展,是對世界現狀強而有力的聲明,也是對敢於傾聽的人
的行動呼籲。對於那些精通計算機、遊戲和互聯網世界的人來說,“META”的概念並不陌生。但對於大眾來
說,這是一個詞和一個概念由“FACEBxxK”的創始人馬克·艾略特·扎克伯格先生推廣(我喜歡稱他為Mark
SuckerFugs)。在2021年10月28日,他更改公司名稱為“META”,並將其印記在我們的腦海中。
作為一名藝術家和被稱為“METAMANIAKS”的塗鴉團隊的一員,我一直意識到文字和圖像的力量。我利用我
的藝術教育和引起人們關注,並令公眾意識到面臨著的重要問題。例如在過往的展覽中:“Hidari Zingaro
METAVIRUS”(2018年東京),“METABUGS”(2019年泰國),“METAZEALOT”(2020年洛杉磯),
“METASHEEPLE”(2021年香港)和“METASPIRAL”(2022年東京)。可當扎克伯格先生更改公司名稱時,
我很憤怒,覺得我的聲音被淹沒了並顯得我像在模仿他的行為,於是我決定最後一次使用“META”這個詞在我
的個展。不過我並不是一個會被企業打敗的人。我利用這次展覽來揭露威脅我們自由的危險。比如世界經濟論
壇(WEF),我認為它代表了一種新形式的威權主義,一個現代的第四帝國。我們面臨的挑戰確實很大。令人深
感關切的是,如食物短缺、人類食用富含蛋白質的昆蟲以及聯合國的可持續發展目標 (SDG) 等種種跡象。
與此同時,世界正處於戰爭之中,但是沒有人明白自己為何而戰?
