'Hong Kong not only plays host to one of the most important art and auction markets in the world, but is also home to an extremely vibrant local art scene. Hong Kong Artists is the first international publication dedicated to this unique and burgeoning artistic landscape, introducing twenty visual contemporary artists and their work through a collection of proclaiming images and writings. The media used are as broad as the ideas they convey, and range from pencil drawing to public performance, from painting to computer-animated video work. The focus of Hong Kong Artists is on the generation of artists born between the late 1970s and the mid 1980s. A series of introductory essays on identity, culture, urbanism, economy and artistic traditions frame the parameters of this collection of artists and their work and ideas, giving the reader the background information to this extraordinary setting.' —from the publisher's website
