Wilson Shieh has been touted as the most talented young artist in Hong Kong, and I had the honour of meeting him this past Saturday at the ICAF. Born in Hong Kong in 1970, Shieh graduated from the Fine Arts Department of The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 1994. He paints modern, sometimes political, and often humorous images on silk using a traditional chinese method called “gongbi” (meaning fine line). He is represented in Hong Kong by Grotto Fine Art – where he has a solo exhibition coming up at the end of this month. I was told by the gallery manager that almost 90% of these pieces have already been sold. He is also represented by several galleries worldwide, so if you are interested in seeing some fantastic contemporary chinese art that incorporates traditional techniques I suggest you check him out. This is one of the pieces that will be featured in his upcoming show.
