Five tallest buildings in Hong Kong
Born in Hong Kong in 1970, Wilson Shieh received a B.A. degree (fine arts major) and a M.F.A. degree from The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 1994 and 2001 respectively. He set up his studio in Fotan industrial district of Hong Kong in 2008. He started his artistic practice in Chinese gong-bi (meticulous fine-line) style figure painting, with contents of sexuality, role play, costume play and cultural symbols presented in a contemporary approach. One of the iconic series is the “Architecture dresses” in which ladies dress up in costumes symbolize skyscrapers in modern big cities. In recent years, he expands his art form in other media such as printmaking, acrylic painting, drawing and collage, transforming his painting practice into live projects and installation.
