The work "Hawaii Story" is a mixture of neo-expressionist symbols and calligraphic characters borrowed from different alphabets, applied with pigment ink and acrylic paint on canvas for a contrasting result. Strong symbols, totem animals, divinatory characters rub shoulders with signs called "Neoglyphs" or pop pictograms, invented or re-invented Japanese characters, hidden messages, entirely dedicated to free interpretation. The subject is a graphic reinterpretation of a TV series from the 90s. This painting is a graphic wink on an image of this series whose colors have always been intriguing and strong. All this is linked to the ocean which is an important part of the artist's work.

The brutality of the graffiti, the softness of the art of calligraphy but also the Cyrillic alphabet or hieroglyphics, Woo plays with symbols and our imagination in addition.

Jack-of-all-trades with Asian roots

His pseudonym evokes both his Asian roots and his experience in Hong Kong. Within the Le Comptoir group and aboard its flagship, the Bibo restaurant, Woo drowns in the works of Banksy, Murakami, Arsham, Ron English, Jonone, Basquiat, Invader, Hirst, Kaws, Shepard Fairey, André, JR and many others. This initiatory journey reaches its peak with the Art Basel Hong Kong exhibitions, an absolute pinnacle of creativity and inspiration.

Woo is a jack-of-all-trades and has worked in music, furniture design and most recently in collaboration with the Karim Rashid Interior Design Firm in New York. He is a multidisciplinary artist who has been working in Bordeaux, France since 2005.

An instinctive art that unfolds between Street Art and calligraphy

Inspired from childhood by the graphic universe of Keith Haring or Niki de Saint Phalle, Woo's production is characterized by a technique that combines acrylic paint, pigment inks, Posca markers, and gilding. His preferred media are paper or canvas. No matter the size, no one can stop this incorrigible creative!

His art is at the crossroads of Street Art and calligraphy. Some of his works address contemporary societal themes that one can identify through his use of symbols.

More recently, we were able to meet Woo at the Halle Héméra in Bordeaux for the KAZoART back-to-school exhibition in September 2020. We had a beautiful evening during which Woo produced an exceptional live painting experience that lasted almost 2 hours!
