Artist Statement

Joe Joe Ngai

魏凱畧

Joe Joe Ngai is a young contemporary artist who delivers his unique perspective through an unconventional aesthetic voice.  From the sly grimace of a beagle to a shapely can of Spam, from the thumping of a beating heart to an overactive liver, Joe Joe’s work invites the public on a multi-dimensional journey by introducing new life to the seemingly-mundane of the ordinary.

Joe Joe Ngai studied in the Masters degree Fine Arts program at the City & Guild London School of Art in 2006 and has held two previous solo exhibitions in Hong Kong including “Figure Figures” in 2006 and “Good is the New Black” in 2009. He has also participated in various collaborative exhibitions in Athens, London and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Shanghai.
