Artist / Law Man Lok
Senior animation producer, art labour and artist. Lawman does not believe in media categorization, he believes the media used shall be synchronised to the creative concept and the creator’s heart. Lawman’s works emphasise on the synergy of imagination and criticism.
“Kitsch Pastiche Aesthetics” , a term which Lawman often mentioned in recent years, is his obscure summary of local (H.K.) culture observation. It is not a scholar term but an honest approach to examine the relationship between himself and the world via the cultural perspective.
