Studio Pastina x Johnson Tsang
The result of a creative conversation between Studio Pastina and the distinguished artist Johnson Tsang, the collection for Behspoke - represents a fusion of identities and cultures of the Italian Design studio and the Hong-Kong based artist.
Born in Hong Kong, Tsang’s works mostly employ realist sculptural techniques accompanied by surrealist imagination. In 2002, Tsang started to represent versatile splashes with ceramics. He created the Yuanyang series, which were then collected by the Hong Kong Museum of Art and the Yingge Ceramics Museum of Taiwan. During the past decade, Tsang continues to develop his techniques in capturing the instantaneous moment of splashes with white porcelain and stainless steel. In 2011 and 2012, Tsang’s works, “Bowls of Fantasy” and “Splash of Wonder”, were awarded the Special Prize of Korea Gyeonggi, International Ceramix Biennale of 2011, International Competition and Grand Prize of 2012 and Taiwan International Ceramics Biennale. Tsang is the first Chinese artist to have received both of these two prestigious international ceramics awards.
When we go to sleep, where do we really go?
Maybe when we’re dreaming…
we’re more lucid than when we are awake.
