Catalogue Note

At a relatively young age, Shieh mastered the art of gongbi (fine-brush painting) and emerged on the contemporary art scene with solo exhibitions beginning in the 1990s. He has since exhibited his works in both public and private collections worldwide. Addressing modern issues such as identity, body, and dress while rendering images with utmost detail and vibrant colours; his paintings manifest concepts of hybridity and establish the illusion of three-dimensionality. 

Melding the natural human form with various well-renowned Hong Kong symbols, Bank of China is Shieh’s way of personifying the controversial issues of development and political favouritism that often surrounds major real estate projects.  Originating in his signature Architecture series where female forms wear the dress of iconic Hong Kong skyscrapers, Shieh explores the culture of corporate capitalism.
