Biography / Johnson Tsang

Johnson Tsang first took a clay modeling class in 1991, during his thirteen-year career as a policeman. Now 58 years old, Tsang is a prolific creator of sculptures of faces that are stretched and opened up in surreal ways and that push the boundaries of realism. He shares new pieces on his website and other social media platforms, where he also chronicles his works in progress. His art can be found on his collaboration with URBAN NATION on Project M/14 in 2019.

Tsang observes the world from the inside out. The silent reflection of his environment is a large part of his artistic process. By creating his pieces, he illustrates his experiences within this status. The artist wants to avoid having to explain his art with words. Rather he leaves it to the viewer to let their own experiences flow into the interpretation of the works. For almost 30 years now, Tsang’s sculptures have been exhibited in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea, Spain and Switzerland and are part of local and overseas museums and collections.
