Manny Yip Man 葉雯 is a Hong Kong based artist.
In 2017, Manny graduated with a BA in Fine Art from Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University (co-presented with Hong Kong Art School) majoring in Painting. That same year, she received the Reaching Out Award from the Hong Kong Education Bureau.
She has been awarded artist residencies in Chicago, IL, USA, and Sofia, Bulgaria. She is currently available for commissions.
Manny’s works revolve around memories and build another space through dreams. With life experience and imaginings as her sources of creation, she explores the external realism and self-construction.
Her artworks record and respond to the feeling of girls in both reality and consciousness. By being alone, she experiences the unique feeling of objects or things; she finds out the subtle relationship between herself and the unknown world. Her work is often cumulative. Through gestural and dynamic brushstrokes, Manny's works convey ideas related to the female body. She believes that the small things in life will more easily reveal the truth. Her paintings, installations and photographs, show the complexity of a woman’s inner feelings.
Since 2016, Manny’s artworks, such as At grandma’s house and The pink Island, were bought by private collectors, gradually receiving recognition.
