Xiong Yu @ VA Gallery in Hong Kong

 Xiong Yu is now showing “Mirrors of the Heart” at the VA gallery in Hong Kong.

Xiong is part of a new generation of young artists who has been influenced by animation. Using a cartoon-like style, the artist explores the dreams of a young generation of Chineses, focusing on the relationship between ideals and social reality. His characters appear full of hope of a better life.

The elements of wings and beams of light in his works convey people’s faith. The artist says: “Everyone has a dream, existing in their hearts just like invisible wings. “
