From now and until the 19th of September, the walls of the 6/8 play host to a series of pastels and prints from Kevin Leung Chung. His second appearance at the 6/8 features self-portraits, the divine, biblical scenes, the illusion of repetition, nightmare black and whites to serene blurry pastels, aggressive extroversion to reigned in self-awareness.
Kevin Leung Chung was born and brought up in Hong Kong. He came to the UK on his own in his late teen. After spending two and a half years on a graphic design course at De Montfort University, he left the course without graduating from it. Currently, Kevin works in new product development at a concierge company.
“The thought of having to constantly produce work does not sit well with me. I could go without picking up a pen to draw for weeks. The need to create arises only when a thought or an image becomes so vivid, and needs to detach from me to become a physical being on its own.
Portrait is my favourite subject. I find emotion and feelings shown through facial expressions are very captivating.”
