Memories of Manchester - Gordon Cheung

Gordon Cheung is of Hong Kong origin and born in London 1975 where he lives and works.

Cheung’s multi-media art capture the hallucinations between the virtual and actual realities of a globalised world oscillating between Utopia and Dystopia. Spray paint, oil, acrylic, pastels, stock listings and ink collide in his works to form epic techno-sublime vistas.

I visited Manchester City’s Urbis in 2007 & fell in love with Gordon Cheung’s work, large scale art in multiple mediums often using the Financial Times as a canvas.
