JP Art Consultancy| Wayne Mok

Working in short series of acrylic paintings allows Wayne Mok to explore the beauty of spontaneity as well as the power of repetition and automatism, drawing on the artistic and philosophical history of his Chinese heritage and the palpable Western influences in his current home city of London. Art history and personal history meld in each series and in every piece, with marks that can denote a musing on love, a question about faith or a moment of desire. Here, at this psychic and physical colliding point of East and West, the subtlety of ink and wash painting meets with the seeming chaos of the Abstract Expressionists to allow the creation of paintings born of both intuition and process.

Mok is a graduate of the San Francisco Art Institute and of the California College of Arts. He has exhibited extensively in London, San Francisco and Portland.
