Rainy Ip (b.1959, Hong Kong)
Graduated from The Chinese University of Hong Kong (BFA in Fine Arts) in 1984.
Rainy collects rusted objects and recycled woods, re-creating them into thoughtful sculptural works. The industrial waste that comprised the works was collected by the artist from the streets and hardware shops. His collaged works speak to his childhood memories and the inner child living inside him. After his retirement from film production in 2012, Rainy has been intensely focusing on art practices, which he experiments with a wide spectrum of skills, techniques, processes and materials. His works express a poetic narrative of his personal memories, which creates emotional resonance for the audience
