XEME - HONG KONG
Xeme is a Hong Kong based artist whose distinct textual style has marked the city in bold strokes since 2001. He has primarily dedicated his art form to letters and abstract patterns. His work evolves continuously, but remains rooted in his background of painting Chinese characters and Calligraphy within his artworks.
He has exhibited around the world in major cities including LA, San Francisco, UK, Australia, and Thailand, both solo and group exhibitions with artists including Faust, Demsky and Felipe Pantone.
Recently he's been exploring art in low resolution digital form. His first show in Japan entitled "Low Resolution" is a summary of his graffiti art in coexistence with modern technology and retrospective digital art.
XEME - GOLDEN HAND
Originally created as a print for HK walls festival in Sham Shui Po, these are the last 2 prints available.
Xeme creates contemporary, urban calligraphy which is relevant to people of all ages, but takes a classic art form and toughens it up for today’s art fan,
The characters translated refer to ‘killing in 4 directions’ often linked to Mahjong. In this case Xeme is referencing his coverage of Hong Kong city as a graffiti artist.
