Introducing

BENSON KOO

Born in the 80s in Hong Kong, Benson Koo takes darkness as one of his favorite topics as well as an artistic creation type, so his works tend to permeate distinctive absurdity and fearlessness: images such as death, blood, violence, and darkness are condensed in his artistic creation and endowed with life. His works are like a mirror, reminding us to faithfully look at and face our inner darkness.
