Manny Yip

(b.1994, Hong Kong)


Her works capture senses of female identity and childhood innocence which are both reflections of her memories and yearnings. The abstraction and openness of the spatial interpretation in her works also speak for themselves. YIP received BAFA at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University (co-presented with Hong Kong Art School). She has been awarded the Reaching Out Award (2017) which included artist residency programmes in Bulgaria & Chicago, and Grant for Emerging Artists (2019). She has been invited to collaborate with Wong Bik-wan's Novels by Hong Kong Literature Festival(2020). ”Bit Of Memory" is a collaborative artwork which has been invited by The Hong Kong Art Festival for an interview(2021). Her artworks were collected by private collectors and exhibited in several cities, Hong Kong, United States and  Europe. She has also been invited as a selected artist by commercial corporations and as a  programme instructor for schools, she has been invited to be a tutor by 1a space for the Jockey Club Contemporary Art Literacy and Appreciation Programme.

Memories with Fringe Club 與藝穗會的回憶

What is the first things you remember about the Fringe Club? 


  • I remembered that there was the pottery shop at side of Wyndham Street in Fringe Club  building long time ago. I wanted to learn the pottery so I went there for enquiry. That’s my first time I discovered beautiful red blocks colonial building.  


When was that? 

  • I don’t remember exactly year, the time I was starting to enjoy live in Hong Kong. 


What were you doing at that time? 

  • I was working for airline company.  


What are you working on now?  

  • I am preparing for small exhibition at Café in Hong Kong coming this June. 

Could you tell us about the work that you are have submitted?  

  • The artwork that I have submitted was one of my first solo exhibition at Fringe Club in 2021. Flowers motif with vivid colors created unique delightful atmosphere.
