An artist who is both young in age and career, Angela Yuen began her professional artistic practice in 2014, however she is already amassing a growing collector base in Hong Kong, Australia, and Japan. Born in 1991, she is part of the young generation of Hong Kong artists who are injecting new life into the city’s artistic identity. She began making chandeliers with found objects, then progressed to standing sculptures using similar motifs and aesthetics. Her creative practice is finding vintage collectibles and repurposing them into kinetic and static sculptures. Collecting can be said to be in her blood; as a child, Yuen watched as her father collected vintage stamps. There is a quiet beauty in celebrating the days of wine and roses, and her oeuvre is filled with those bittersweet and wonderful moments.
