Wilson SHIEH (b.1970, Hong Kong), graduated in BA from and MFA degree from Chinese University of Hong Kong, majoring in fine arts major in 1994 and 2001 respectively. He started his artistic practice in Chinese fine-brush (gongbi) technique, works on various media ranging from Chinese ink painting on silk, acrylic on canvas to paper cutout collage. He focuses on human bodies as major theme for narration. Transforming figuration by means of tailor-made costumes, the identity of modern people is always in query in his art world.

Houses Project” (Dr. Sun Yat-sen Museum, Hong Kong, 2017), “Wilson Shieh…Sumbody” (Osage Gallery, Hong Kong, 2012), group exhibition “A Century of Women in Chinese Art” (Ashmolean Museum, University of Oxford, U.K., 2018), “Asian Art Biennial 2009” (National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Taichung, Taiwan, 2009), “The Third Asia-Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art” (Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane, Australia, 1999).
