Born in 1987 in Hong Kong
Now lives and works in Hong Kong
With a bachelor’s degree from the fine arts department of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Kong Chun Hei has cultivated an artistic practice galvanized by his keen, unperturbed sense of observation. His work examines everyday objects and their inherent forms, while exposing varying nuances in the relationship between the object and the context where it is found. This has underpinned his practice which stretches intuitively across painting, installation, and video in an artistic exploration propelled by the artist’s inquisitive nature.
