Man Mei-to

Man Mei-to (b.1990) obtained her Bachelor degrees in Arts from Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University (RMIT) and Hong Kong Arts School in 2015, majoring in painting. Her artworks incorporate various media such as painting, photography, video, installation and mixed media.

 

Man’s artworks typically engage the “body”. By objectifying and alienating the body in her works, tension is aroused; hence, the distances and relationships between him, her, it and us are explored. She also enjoys discovering natural landscape in her everyday city life.
