Jovial Yeung – Glass and Mixed Media

3_Jovial_protrait

Jovial Yeung is a mixed-media and glass artist. She lives and works in Hong Kong now.

Jovial has a passion for experimentation with materials. Her strong knowledge of studio glass art techniques, combined with her experience in metalsmithing and antiques restoration, result in unique mixed-media artworks. She keeps pushing and exploring the properties of various media in her pursuit of expressing emotions through art. The extremely fine and delicate “Glass-pinning” technique of her latest series of artworks “The Victims” contrast with their critical and unsettling messages.

Born in 1986 in Hong Kong, Jovial Yeung obtained her B.A. in Visual Arts with Honours in 2012 from the Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University. Her works have been exhibited in different shows in Hong Kong and overseas. She was presented with an Honourable Mention in the 2014 Emerging Artists category by the Glass Art Society in the United States, and she was awarded a Merit Prize in Chinese Contemporary Glass Art Exhibition 2014.
