In Touch with Hong Kong Artists: Kwok Mang-ho

Resource Kit Overview

In the 1970s, new forms of art appeared in the Western art world, bringing new insights to the traditional static forms of art. Artists began interacting with audience through alternative creative forms, transforming static art into dynamic art, and breaking the barrier between artists and audience. Kwok Mang-ho, also known as “Frog King”, is an avant-garde Hong Kong artist with a unique image. He has been creating through improvisation for over 40 years. His works go beyond traditional art media in random, relaxed, fun-filled performances to convey his creative vision.

This resource kit aims to introduce Kwok Mang-ho’s creation through improvisation and his ongoing Froggy Sunglasses project to students for understanding new forms of art creation by making artworks with different materials and interacting with each other to share happiness.
