The Hong-Kong-based artist studies photographs as he works, to add realism to his art. “The most important thing is to capture the mood you want to convey,” he says. “It’s like when you see an iconic shot from a classic film: you can practically feel the music and the unforgettable sensation it gives you.”
“My aim in this painting was to create a moody setting. It’s interesting how bright light sources in the background add to the sombre atmosphere of the piece.”
“This is a personal painting inspired by The Hobbit – the book, not the recent films.”
“I wanted to portray an evil corporation built on the remains of a city destroyed by an apocalyptic event. Unsurprisingly, the headquarters are based in the tallest tower.”
“This is an environment design for a future game project that I worked on. The laboratory is set on Enceladus, one of the moons of Saturn.”
