About the artist:
Wan Ho (b.1987) is a Chinese born, Norway Stavanger based graffiti writer and prodigious tagger who uses the moniker Wan Ho for his studio based work. His work consists of intricately detailed pen and ink, acrylic on canvas and his own hand pulled artist edition screenprints as well as objects and installations.
His work explores a rich tapestry of influences from Manga to Graffiti, fantasy and reality, politics, both personal and social to dreams and reality. Rich in symbolism, Wan Ho’s work focuses on the dichotomy of his own experiences and draws influence from both China’s rich cultural heritage and the West’s constant search for the “new”. Embracing tagging and graffiti culture at an early age, Wan Ho’s work often contains references to these seemingly polar opposites, the ephemeral (West) and the eternal (East). Clinging to the past whilst attempting to liberate oneself from it creates a constant contradiction that sets up a tension in his work and life that this series of new works explore to the full.
