Macau illustrator Yang Sio Maan is having her works exhibited at Ox Warehouse until August 4, 2019.
“Sketching is the most direct response to what I see through my eyes. In sketching, the lines jump, the picture flows, and everything become matter of factly evident. But afterwards, what can be taken away or left behind? In recent years, my life has become different. In the face of such changes, I tried to reorganize it. Fragmental as it still is, I have managed to piece together life itself.”
Ox Warehouse’s New Art People Project aims to nurture a new generation of young artists by providing them with a space for bold attempts and experimentations. In the exhibition, the artist has tried several visual approaches with collage, clay making and printmaking, and through the process explores the possibilities of illustration as an artistic language. In this exhibition, through the interaction of illustration and space in a dialogue with herself, she presents her personal emotional experiences as well as a kind of alienated and lonely state of mind shared by urban dwellers.
Yang has a BA, with a major in English literature, completing her studies with a MA in Illustration from the University for Creative Arts in the UK. She is the fresh category winner (New Talent-Advertising) in World Illustration Award 2019. She is currently based in Macao, working as a freelance illustrator.
