Frank Woo’s artwork shows an inspirational blending of traditional Chinese colours and textures mingled with modern art and raw emotion. He is a self-taught painter, trained in print- making in Hong Kong. His travels and burning desire for inspiration brought him to Japan, to Tokyo’s Bunka Fashion College to complete his Degree in Illustration. Today he resides in Malaysia where he expresses his artistic inspiration through both paint and sculpture. Distinctive brushstrokes and drips, characteristic of abstract impressionism, give the illusion of chance and movement to his artwork. Meanwhile each drip is highly deliberate, carefully placed and calculated to give the work the desired feel.
