Ten Thousand Miles Ahead By Wai Wai
About The Artist
Born and raised in Yau Ma Tei, Hong Kong. Wai Wai is a local illustrator and artist who uses watercolor as her main medium.
In 2016, she studied water-based woodblock printmaking (Mokuhanga) and learned the Etegami (Japanese Folk Art painting) technique in MI-Lab, Lake Kawaguchi, Japan. In 2017, she went to Heilongjiang Province, China, to learn another folk art “fish skin painting”, which was featured in the RTHK TV program “Wind Takers”.
Wai Wai paints illustrations of local vintage shops to bring people closer in their communities. Drawing people is her favourite subject, and putting their diligence and dedication into drawings is her most satisfaction. “A Love Letter to Yau Ma Tei” is Wai Wai’s first published solo album. She holds a Bachelor degree of Arts (Hons) in Creative Media, with a major in film..
