We are also part of art collections for private and commercial projects. These projects are in Japan, Australia, Britain, Turkey, and other international locations.

Alvin Mak | Engineer Turned Hong Kong Artist

Alvin comes from a family of engineers. He went on to study mechanical engineering at Queens University in Canada. “My mother gave me a camera when I was a child and it became my artistic outlet. I also have a creative curiosity. Becoming an artist felt like a natural transition. At first, I started photographing Hong Kong street life and urban scenes. But I was soon drawn to more abstract aesthetics. This lead to photographing more graphical details of the city. As well as investigations into new materials.”

Alvin’s work includes photography, digital art and paper art. He also creates sculptures and art objects in metal, resin and fibreglass.

Dana Shek | From Business of Art to Making Art

Dana graduated from Loughborough University School of Art and Design, UK. She moved to Hong Kong to work as an art consultant and gallery manager. “When I studied Multi-Media Textile Design it was the process of making which I enjoy the most. Working in the art industry was an invaluable experience. But I was at a turning point in my career. In the end, it was time to make art again.”

Dana uses colour, texture as well as tactile materials. This stems from her textile background. Her work includes textile art, paper art, paper cutting, paper collage, and also digital art.
