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 - NEONPIX I
Vivid interpretation of Mong Kok and Hong Kong’s neon lights are the centrepiece of this new artwork by Xeme. Part of his distorted, pixelated Hong Kong series especially for G.O.D.
The detailing and precision in the blurred pixels creates a striking image of well known Hong Kong’s neons.
He uses masking tape to form perfect squares, which he hand paints in acrylic and spray paint to create the pixelated image. On canvas
