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. Wave was Frank’s first Solo exhibition in Europe. His travels through Japan and Asia, and his life as a foreigner, always moving through, relocating, struggling to belong, to find a place to rest has inspired the an art collection full of movement and searching. The cool basic water element, movement, waves of the Asian seas which give Japan and Malaysia life are interspersed with vibrant colours of passion and life, struggle and hope for the future.
