His art explores the subconscious of the human being and reminds us that our exterior is nothing but a frail shield, that can be easily smashed and deformed. Hong Kong-based artist Johnson Tsang did that with Lucid Dream II, his new series of porcelain sculptures inspired by his own dreams and meditations.

He is a self-taught artist who works primarily with porcelain and creates very amusing and surrealist pieces. Having served for 13 years as a police officer before getting interested in taking his art on full-time, he has seen some pretty gruesome scenes of violence and human disfiguration, which have impacted his view on life and even contributed to the spark of his inspiration for new pieces.

If you keep an open mind, you can understand most of Tsang’s creations and even create your own version of the story behind them. Johnson Tsang‘s sculptures captivate the human expression to the fullest and offer you a limitless space for imagination. Highly imaginative and provocative, his porcelain pieces are a fine contemporary work that will never leave you disappointed.
Lucid Dream II – Work in Progress
Johnson Tsang is an exceptional artist who skillfully combines figurative sculptural techniques with surreal portrayals, that mostly consist of human heads in strangely transformed representations. It’s still questionable what he’s presenting in the future but it certainly leaves everyone eager to see more of his creations of very weird situations!
