Artist Bio - Hoiming Fung
Hoiming Fung - Leather Artist & Designer
"I think each piece of leather deserves respect because it’s a gift of nature. Each piece is unique and beautiful in its own way, and you won’t be able to find an identical piece. It is a perfect “combination” of paper and fabric, which I was familiar with."
I consider design/ crafts/ visual as a way to convey messages, which is like a secret language that people who get it would fall in love with. I can’t say my work is art, but a bridge for ideas to pass through. The message itself may not be new; yet, the ways it is revealed will leave the audiences a stronger impression, and that’s something I am still pursuing.
I was raised by a tailor’s family and graduated with a graphic design degree. Before I have become a leather craftsman, I was an art director in an advertising agency. I work mostly with leather in recent years, and love the uniqueness of this material while each piece seems to have its own soul. Another reason I fall in love with leather is because of its texture. It is a perfect “combination” of paper and fabric, which I was familiar with.
Hoiming is always inspired by daily lives and able to turn her ideas into different forms of craft/visual which open up opportunities to collaborate with different brands and artists.
