Ho Sin Tung

b. 1986, Hong Kong

Ho Sin Tung was born in Hong Kong and has lived, studied and worked there ever since. Ho began her artistic training at the age of three when she attended workshops in the studio of Hong Kong painter Gaylord Chan. She graduated with a BFA from the Fine Arts Department of The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2008. Ho’s work is multidisciplinary and cross-media. Her two-dimensional work predominantly uses pencil, graphite and watercolour in combination with found and ready-made images – including the use of stickers, maps, charts, rubber-stamps and timelines. These are reinterpreted to narrate stories of places, relationships and periods of time often within a considered, objective historical setting. Ho also creates video art and process-led projects that interpret and extend different narrative frameworks. Her artworks are sometimes exhibited, sometimes collected, sometimes abandoned.
