Joey Leung has been a professional photographer since 2001, but at the same has devoted in building his artistic path as a professional ceramicist. Fish is also a signature symbol of Joey’s ceramic works, including the hand-painted fish dishes and fish sculptures. But what is the meaning of fish? Joey is always trying to present my minds through the works, from seeking the traces of the social traditions, recording the images of the happenings in the society, to predicting how people can enjoy or preserve their life in the future. Joey tries to put his emotions and thoughts in the works at the same time, allowing people to feel and think, rather than just creating something are beautiful only. Joey has already received a number of awards from professional and reputable organizations, such as Hong Kong Press Photographers Association and Hong Kong News Industry Council. Besides, he has taken part in various group and solo exhibitions in Hong Kong and Japan. His works, including ceramic and photographs, have already proved his bright future in the art world, i.e. in 2015 he was invited to be one of the speakers at TEDxYouth Hong Kong.
