ABOUT 







Manny Yip
(b.1994) is a Hong Kong based artist and art educator.

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 Sofia, Bulgaria and Chicago.  
 
She has been awarded “Grant for Emerging Artists”  from Hong Kong Arts Development Council in 2020, curated the exhibition “A Place In Time” in Fringe Club. Manny’s artworks were bought by private collectors, gradually receiving recognition. Her works are exhibited in Hong Kong, United States and Europe. She is currently available for commissions and orgazine art events with schools. 

Her works capture senses of childhood innocence, which are both reflections of her memories and yearnings from the bottom of her heart. The abstraction and openness of the spatial interpretation in her works also speak for themselves. They are not merely an obsession with the past, but also an inviting space for viewers to freely associate with their own memories and imagination.


葉雯  1994年生於香港,藝術家及藝術教育工作者。2017年畢業於墨爾本皇家理工大學(與香港藝術學院合辦)之榮譽學士課程,主修繪畫。同年獲獎學金外展體驗獎,於保加利亞及美國芝加哥進行藝術家駐留計劃。

2016於元創坊舉辦首個個展;2020年獲藝發局新苗藝術資助策劃於藝穗會舉辦展覽《某年某地》。作品於香港、美國、東歐等地方展出,其作品被私人收藏。曾與多個商業單位合作聯乘,並統籌多個藝術教育活動。

葉氏喜歡以紀憶為題材,圍繞著童年及自我探討過程,並以之建造出另一空間。她相信,微不足道的事有時反而更能展現出真實。作品自有抽象的、開放的詮釋空間。
