I About Wayne Choi (voice, guitar) I:
Wayne Choi received his BA in Fine Arts from the University of California, Riverside. Playing cover songs in the style of blues and folk, and occasionally doing loop based music performances with the help of tiny machines and computers, Wayne makes music and sings for the absurdity of life.
I About Mur Nomade I:
Mur Nomade is a curatorial office and gallery. Our name is the French translation of ‘nomadic wall’. We present site-specific projects in selected venues all around Hong Kong, in addition to regular exhibitions at our gallery space in Aberdeen. We work closely with local and international artists to imagine and conceive exhibitions and programmes such as artist residencies, collaborative art projects, travel grants, workshops and outreach initiatives.
Mur Nomade focuses on projects encouraging cultural exchanges and creative encounters. We like bold ideas and we are convinced that cultural exchanges support creativity, stimulate emulation and encourage experimentation.
