The Interdisciplinary Art of Hong Kong Collective Parent’s Parents

by Amelia Taylor-HochbergPosted on

Equally at home on the street and on the gallery wall, Hong Kong-based artist collective Parent’s Parents produce tight graphical work mixing graffiti art and comic characters. The group of young Chinese artists/designers met while still in school, and produce drawings, (spray-) paintings, illustrations and leather crafts that feature anthropomorphic characters with a wonderfully-demented vibe. Much of their large-scale mural works in galleries feature English text, placing typographic design alongside collage-work and fantastical, chaotic characters. From their own mouths, this collective of millennial artists see their whimsical and urban-minded work as a way for them to “explore the limitless of chaos, exceptional beauty and modernness.”
