Biography

Lynus Woo (born 1995) graduated from the Ruskin School of Art at Oxford University in 2017. He has since taken up a prolific career as an active entrepreneur, a bodybuilder, a personal fitness trainer while pursuing his unceasing passion for artistic creation at the same time.

Lynus's works primarily with oil paint as his preferred medium. His artistic practice focuses on colour perception as an entity that provides a conceptual framework that embodies, fosters and represents human emotions. His oeuvre to date hence presents a shift in subject matter from streetscapes to people inhabiting these spaces, and subsequently narrowing down to portraitures of his acquaintances, friends and family, and ultimately, himself. Viewers will find influences of celebrated contemporary artists including Lucian Freud, Cecily Brown and Jenny Saville in his modus operandi.

Lynus Woo: A Pilgrimage in Colours marks his artistic debut in Hong Kong, coinciding with the inauguration of REP.

胡智同(1995 年生)在2017 年畢業於牛津大學拉斯金藝術學院。畢業後的他身兼企業家、健美選手、私人健身教練等多職。與此同時,他亦不懈積極追求自身對藝術創作的熱忱。

胡智同的作品以油畫為主,著重於色彩感知概念,並以其作為創作框架,探索人類如何「感形於色」。藝術家創作至今,筆下主題已經歷數個階段的演變。他的畫作從早期對街景和穿梭這些空間的人們的捕捉,聚焦至親朋戚友的肖像描繪,最後把自己變成主要的創作題材。觀者可從胡智同的作畫手法中發現盧西安・弗洛伊德、塞西莉・布朗和珍妮・薩維爾斯等著名當代藝術家的影響。

「胡智同:色彩的巡禮」適逢其創立的REP. 健身中心隆重開幕,是藝術家於香港舉辦的出道個展。
