We spend just above 30% of our lives in bed. Our global average lifespans are 67.2 years, meaning we spend about 20.16 years in our beds. If NYC is the city that never sleeps, than HK is the city that never rests… I moved to HK from Seoul, Korea just under a year ago and it has been a shock to my internal metabolism. Here in the twisting canyons of steel and glass and the relentless din of it’s congested Market alleys, I have drawn my inspiration and at times perspiration for my recent exhibition at Galerie Perrotin HK.

I should tell you that I was born in Incheon city Korea, raised in Minnesota USA, spent over 12 years of my life in NYC and 4 years in paris. So as a result, I travel a lot. Unlike my transition From NYC to Paris which seemed a de-aceleration, my recent move had the absolutely opposite effect. Here everyone is busy all the time, perhaps it is the famous Chinese work ethic, or the fact that Hong kong is the only truly global cosmopolitan city in asia. Clearly it re-defines the term “hustle and bustle” for the 21st century. Upon moving here I found that a couple things happened to me and most importantly my work.
