About FROG KING KWOK

The eclectic and vibrant Frog King Kwok (aka Kwok Mang Ho) is an indomitable artist and is one of the most important figures in the history of contemporary art in Hong Kong. He was a pioneer to experiment in performance and conceptual practices in Hong Kong as early as the 1970s.

Frog King is one of the earliest Hong Kong contemporary artists to explore the use of ink painting as a conceptual tool, incorporating it as both action and material into multiple-media installations, performances, happenings, and assembled environments incorporating discards and everyday objects. Through his practice, Frog King drifts between Chinese and Western cultures by combining Chinese calligraphy with English writing which, he terms “sandwich font” or by bold splashes of paint used with both a performative and Taoist intention. He finishes his works by embossing a multitude of red ink Chinese chops that he has created himself.
