Joey Ma         

Joey Ma was born and raised in Hong Kong.

He started getting interested in art during the last two years of high school. 
Then Joey moved to Los Angeles to study Economics at University of Southern California and took a few painting classes. That’s when Joey discovered his passion in using oil paints and ever since then, Joey has been doing oil paintings regularly for the last eight years.
    
Joey has developed his current style by experimenting with pure oil paints mixes with chunks of wax to create a unique texture for the paintings. His bold use of all different kinds of colors and brush strokes certainly gives a strong impact on his paintings.

“I:Individuality” is Joey Ma’s first solo exhibition.

Individuality has always been Joey’s favorite word because he thinks everyone in this world is a unique human being and we all should be equal. In this collection, each of his painting is a result of an unique experience of exploring colors and patterns. And for the first time ever, Joey is using circle and oval shapes canvas in his paintings.

ジョーイ・マ

彼は高校の最後の2年間でアートに興味を持ち始めた。

その後、南カリフォルニア大学で経済学を学ぶためロスアンジェルスに移り、絵画のクラスを受ける。この時はじめて油絵具に情熱を見出し、それから今に至るまでの8年間、油彩画を描き続けている。

ジョーイは絵に独特なテクスチャーを持たせるため、純油彩具とワックスの塊の混合を試みることで、今のスタイルを築いてきた。全く異なる種類の色彩と筆使いを大胆に用いて、作品に強烈な印象を与えている。

I:Individualityはジョーイ・マの初の個展である。

この世界中の全ての人は唯一無二な人間であり、皆が平等であるべきだという考えから、Invidividuality(=個体性)は常にジョーイの最も好きな言葉だった。

この展示作品は一点一点が色と形を探求する独自の経験の結果である。
また、初めて円形と楕円形のキャンバスを用いて制作している。
