Ox Warehouse Art Group continues to function as a platform for young artists, supporting and encouraging new talents to showcase their creative endeavors in Macau. On October 13, 2018, at the new “Post-Ox Warehouse Experimental Field”, the association will usher in an art exhibition with a new generation of artists, entitled The City in My Heart — Creative Artwork Exhibition.
A total of 17 young creatives, including eight artists and nine university students, have been invited to participate in the exhibition. It is indeed commendable that amid busy daily routines earning their dough the eight artists are still able to maintain a passion for artistic creation and engage with the other nine participating university students who are still inexperienced, but with undeniable potential.
Taking to the theme of the exhibition, “The City in My Heart”, these young creators will present the Macau that their eyes and hearts see, reflecting on issues resulting from the enclave’s rapid transformation in recent years. Are they fascinated by the buzzing and glamorous Cotai Strip or those gambling games dubbed as wonderful entertainment? Or are they stuck in endless excavation works, congested traffic, and the ever-rising commodity and house prices of Macau? Do they indulge in nostalgia for the bygone era and world? Are they discontent? Do they feel helpless? Or just numb? Through this exhibition, visitors can take a glimpse at the new generation’s unique vision of their city, a place where they live, work, or study.
Participating artists are 2 UP Studio, Kinson Lam, Ella Lei, Natalie Pun, Ai Sio Pui Ian, Sour Graphik and Yang Illustration. Participating students are Kay Cheong, Benny Tang, Tonny Deng, Esther He, Cherry Huang, Doria Lin, Tina Loi, Shirley Sou and Mori Xu.
