About me

 

Born in Hong Kong, Vincent studied at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and graduated with a BA in Applied and Media Arts/HD in Multimedia Design and Technology. His career began primarily in visual merchandising where he spent a number of years at IKEA, Sony, and Swarovski applying visual concepts to various roles. This commercial focus stressed the dynamics between art and design and ultimately led Vincent to explore additional concepts and techniques at the University of the Arts London where he is currently pursuing an MA in Visual Arts (Designer Maker). Upon graduation, he hopes to apply these creative techniques in a design oriented career path. Some of his more recent works concentrate on raising the awareness of animal extinction. A wooden sculpture titled "Exist or Extint" won the student art event hosted by Artcube in April 2014. A series of wooden shelving units representing endangered species was showcased at the Milan Furniture Fair in 2014. He is currently developing the extinction motif further by applying different concepts to various materials in order to imprint his unique expression on this theme.
