About the Artist

Yu Kam-faat graduated from the Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University. With a diverse art practice, Yu hopes to learn and gain experiences in expressing various viewpoints and ideas. He previously participated in exhibitions including The Darkest Dark (PMQ, 2019), and Hot Bed Press’ 20:20 Print Exchange (Koo Ming Kown Exhibition Gallery, Hong Kong Baptist University, 2018).


About the Exhibit

When there is just one voice, one goal or one direction left in this world, we can only spend our entire life running forward, without room to think or time to rest. Unfortunately, not everyone has strong legs or flapping wings. Once we pause, we fall behind. Sometimes we are even accused of betrayal and considered as a monster who destroys everything. Yu Kam-faat’s grotesque cartoon characters represent a world where everyone turns into monsters—in doing so, the artist hopes that we can embrace various voices and choose different paths.
