Biography

Ken Kung, starting in photography at the age of 8, he followed his intuition to capture every valuable moment of society and then gradually developed a spiritual minimalist art style. Without any formal education in Art, KEN studied Philosophy and Art himself. KEN's art works are exhibited in Hong Kong and have interviewed by the Magzoid Art Magazine from Dubai. He believes that the essence of art can drive people's mindset and inspire their soul, and it is a channel for expressing creativity and emotions. KEN believes that art is a projective media for the human subconscious. Ken’s art showed different ways of seeing and sensing from his personal experiences. Art is his way to record his inner world from his dreams and subconscious memories.


Dream is a journey. Ken wanna record the memories and reality like recording his dreams.
 
A dream is an journey toward the most secret part of the human soul; according to Sigmund Freud, constitutes the channel  for entering into contact with the unconscious and the spiritual dimension.

From his photo works took over 20 years with mechanic Nikon camera and films. Ken started retrieving the low resolution photos to make it alive in different form of art. The art collections created by Ken with a system of AI Algorithm to transform his visual works and become with paint-liked texture in the experimental process. It’s fun to try and error many times in this experimental process with the mixture of technology and Art, it highlights the meaning of the dreamy world from his eyes. 

 

 

 

 

Artist Statement

To Ken, every moment is a frame of life. Great Art is a record of Culture, Time, Life and Memories.

He put down his camera almost 10 years and focus on his creative career. We all came across a year of sadness in 2019-2020, Ken suddenly wanna do something to the public and can release their emotions, and he think of his photo work took over 10 years with films. Ken started retrieving the low resolution photos to make it alive in different form of art. There are two parts of procedure of his Artwork. Firstly he invited an old master Craftsman from Beijing to do retouch on old photos, which are not in good resolution. Secondly, Ken search for the help of AI program expert to develop a system of AI Algorithm to enlarge his visual work in high resolution. More than that, the visual become with paint-like texture accidentally after AI process. Through all the work on the old photos, Ken finally retrieve his passion of art from the past. The Art in his life is the evidence of reality, the record of Time, and the precious memory of love.

KEN retrieves his passion of art from the past in Tiny Hong Kong Collection. In this series, he think that his Art is the evidence, is the precious memory of his love to old Hong Kong and the history. As the epidemic make all things changes. Ken explores the new meaning of the Hong Kong landscape in the contemporary spiritual aspect, and re-examines Life in another dimension. This TinyHong Kong Collection to be exhibited combined with images with AI algorithms highlight the meaning of the art world from his eyes.

It’s fun to try and error many times in this experimental process with the mixture of technology and Art. It is not perfect, but the imperfection made it Art.
