Dirty Paper is an art collective formed by Chan Wai Lap and Yau Kwok Keung in 2010. Their works represent their memories and experiences of the frequently overlooked absurdities that are part and parcel of Hong Kong life. Their previous solo exhibition Yesterday was held at Osage Gallery in 2013.
Chan Wai Lap is an artist based in Hong Kong. He received his Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Visual Communication from Birmingham City University in 2011. By highlighting the different rules and happenings of the everyday, serious issues usually illustrated by simple materials, displayed in a humorous context, Chan explores the connections between common objects and the quotidian experiences of Hong Kong life.
Yau Kwok Keung is an artist based in Hong Kong. He received his Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Visual Communication Design from the School of Design, Hong Kong Polytechnic University in 2012. With his interest in observing urban life and people’s behaviours and relationships, Yau turns his observations into different stories and lays bare some of the ridiculous aspects of everyday life.
