Stephanie Ho

Artist Statement

Born in Hong Kong in 1979, Stephanie began her training in oil paintings at the early age of 11. After graduating from the London School of Economics in 2001, Stephanie continued to explore her potential in fine art, completing two postgraduate diploma courses at City and Guilds of London Art School and Christies Education, as well as a Masters degree in Museum and Gallery Management at the London City University. Focusing on refining her skills in painting during the last five years, Stephanie continues to develop her highly recognizable Lowry style paintings of tiny human figures. Based mainly on photographs, sometimes Stephanie paints what she sees, and at other times she choreographs the picture. Appeared to be floating liberally on the canvas; every single figure is carefully positioned. Just like composing a piece of music, with notations hanging across the lines, creating enchanting melodies, conversing with the spectators. Stephanie exhibits extensively in London and Asia in recent years, including two solo exhibitions with the renowned Art Beatus Gallery in Hong Kong, group shows at La Galleria, Pall Mall, Cork Street Open Exhibition… and participated in numerous art fairs, such as Art Hong Kong, Art Shanghai, Art Tokyo, Art London, Asia Contemporary Art Show, Islington Contemporary Art and Design Fair and the New Artist Fair.
