ABOUT THE SHOW:

Young Soy Gallery in collaboration with Sauce Lifestyle presents ‘Ying Baau Geng’, or ‘dope enough to explode mirrors’. This collaboration defies traditional labels by displaying street art on the walls of a barbershop, rather than exhibiting within a studio or gallery space. In doing so, the three artists represented – Nelson Caban, Louise Soloway Chan, and Ross Turpin – ‘explode’ the idea of conventional exhibitions. Visitors who come to Sauce do not enter a compulsory viewing room; instead, they enter a laidback barbershop with the suggestion of a viewing room. We hope Ying Baau Geng provides the people with a more approachable outlook on emerging contemporary art in Hong Kong.

LOUISE SOLOWAY CHAN

mixed media artist

Born in London and educated in England and India, Louise Soloway Chan is a visual story-telling artist trying to capture the essence of the rapidly changing city. Louise’s works had been exhibited extensively in institutions such as Royal Academy of Art, Whitechapel Gallery and National Portrait Gallery in London.

Ever since she moved to Hong Kong, Louise was constantly drawn to picture the ordinary lives: men in suits rushing off to work, helpers getting children to school, and many silent voices and invisible hands that are the life force and backbone that keeps the city functioning. Observing & recording daily life has been a private passion of Louise which was brought into public view by the MTR. In 2011, the MTR Corp commissioned Louise Soloway-Chan to create a huge work consisting of 12 bas-reliefs about lives and traditional shop businesses in Hong Kong.

ROSS TURPIN

MIXED MEDIA ARTIST

Born in South Africa, Ross Turpin paints to demonstrate the culmination of his recent personal evolution. Ross uses mixed media to create figurative and abstract art inspired by recurring visions.

NELSON CABAN

mixed media artist

Nelson Cabán was born in 1982 in New York City and currently divides his time between studios in Brooklyn and Hong Kong. Growing up in the early 80s in NYC he realized the impact visual art could have upon people and how it served as a means to formulate and present one’s narrative and express everyday reality. He studied fine arts at Cooper Union (USA), Estudio 13 (Spain), and RBC (Japan), honing the craft of traditional Eastern and Western techniques and mediums. As an artist, the creative process has consistently revealed its importance and potential impact on the lives of individuals and it how may serve as a means to aid in the education process, provoke dialogue and spur growth. Culture, history, and the eternal struggle for social justice are inspirations of his work and reflects not only a personal creative journey but also represents the social, political and cultural realities of different peoples, both contemporary and historical. His art has always been about getting people to rethink the injustices in the world, but more importantly to empower individuals to believe that they can do something powerful with their lives. In 2011, the artist began dividing his time between studios in Harlem, NYC and Hong Kong, China, with the opening of Atelier Agüeybanà in the Fo Tan artist district of Hong Kong. Nelson Cabán has exhibited in one-person and group exhibitions throughout the United States, France, Hong Kong and Japan. He has been featured in Time Out Magazine (New York), The New York Times, Clam Magazine (France), Metropolis Magazine (Japan) and TV Globo (Brasil) as well as many other publications. His work is held in private collections throughout the United States, Europe, South America, China, India and Japan, most notably the collection of the 44th U.S. President, Barack H. Obama.
