For this first and ever solo exhibition in Hong Kong, Huang Yulong showcased 12 art pieces, including “Beside Me”, the sculpture which has never been exhibited in the public, and “On The Way”, his first large-scale sculpture creation, and “Beginner’s Mind”, his latest work in 2015.

This young “post 80s” Chinese artist is strongly influenced by the western culture.  Huang’s works are unique and avant-garde.  He is good at making use of different materials such as porcelain, bronze, aluminium and crystal, to transform traditional Chinese ideas into western hip-hop style sculptures through his exquisite craftsmanship. By mixing different materials, from traditional ceramic to western crystal, his work displays a convergence of Western and Eastern styles, an urban aesthetic with classical underpinning. Taking the Bodhisattva series in this exhibition as an example, Huang’s works “Miroku”, “Miroku 2” and “Pagoda 2011” can perfectly demonstrated his strength of using hip-hop imagery to tell a traditional Chinese legend story.  His works has successfully brought this contemporary art to a higher level, and at the same time, combining collective pieces and home décor into one.

Most of his works are inspired by the elements of hip-hop culture.  To him, the hip-hop culture he often portrays as an element of his creation, such as hoodies with shiny decorations, is an attitude and way of living, not merely a foreign culture appreciated by young Chinese. “Origin and development of hip-hop culture is the soul of my creative work. It is not only a culture, but also an immortal spirit. Hip-hop culture is characterized by vitality, energy, power, purity, sexuality, freedom and courage,” says Huang.
