Local artist, Lynus Woo, is holding his first-ever solo exhibition Lynus Woo: A Pilgrimage in Colours from 21 May to 5 June. The exhibition showcases a group of works produced since 2019 upon Lynus’ return to Hong Kong from the UK.
Lynus Woo: A Pilgrimage in Colours
Lynus Woo: A Pilgrimage in Colours explores and stretches the possibilities of colours in capturing the multifaceted human emotions and inner thoughts that might not be evident in one’s immediate countenance. Born and raised in Hong Kong, Lynus studied Fine Arts at the University of Oxford. Since graduating from The Ruskin School of Art in 2017, he returned to Hong Kong and continued developing his artistic practice.
“Art is reflected in our daily lives through everyday situations and encourages us to better understand our emotions,” says Lynus Woo. “Being influenced by Western and Eastern traditions, my art reflects my perspective of the world while expressing my emotions more openly through painting on canvas. Over the years, I have become enamoured with portraiture, which stems from my belief that every person is unique and has a story to tell.”
REP., the creative crossover between a gym and a gallery
The show also inaugurates REP., the brainchild conceived by Lynus during the city’s pandemic lockdown. The fitness centre incorporates a gallery space that promotes creativity, innovation, and social interaction. The concept aims to blur the boundary between fitness and art, driven by the artist’s philosophical belief that the human body is a living sculpture that constantly evolves, as does the versatile design of REP.’s fitness space.
