TEDDY LEUNG: 白領奇遇記|THE ADVENTURES OF WHITE COLLAR “KWERKY”

作為白領,生活並不一定是平淡乏味的。香港藝術家梁旭以中環白領忙碌的工作生活作為靈感,創造出角色「古怪奇」作為他的藝術代理人,探索和描繪大都市白領的生活。

Being a white-collar is not all bland and dull. Hong Kong artist Teddy Leung inspired by the busy work life of Central white-collar, uses his original character, CEO KWERKY as an artistic agent to explore and portray the life of a white-collar in the metropolitan.

梁旭的作品帶有超現實主義色彩,這源於他的學術背景。受過繪畫和攝影訓練,梁旭能夠揮灑自如地在這兩種創作方式中發揮。一年多來,梁旭通過將城市的燈光和他的經歷轉化為光影的圖騰,在工作環境中反映城市的喧囂。

Teddy’s works have a surrealist undertone which is gratefully influenced by his academic background. Being both trained in painting and photography, Teddy was able to manipulate the two mediums under an experimental surrealist light. Over one year, Teddy captures the city lights and his experiences by transforming them into atmospheric totems which reflect the city’s hustle and bustle through the working environments.

梁旭的原創角色「古怪奇」使用了「Quirky」古怪這個詞。「古怪奇」代表白領在香港商業區緊張的工作生活。然而,梁旭卻通過角色機靈搞怪的行為和表情,以幽默的方式來描繪角色的工作生活。他希望突出白領工作生活中有趣和積極的一面,他的藝術提醒著每個人在這個節奏快的城市中要時不時放慢腳步,放鬆身心。

Teddy’s original character CEO KWERKY plays with the word “quirky”. CEO KWERKY represents white collars’ stressful work life being in the midst of Hong Kong’s central business district. However, through the character’s whimsical behaviors and facial expressions, Teddy intends to portray the character’s work life in a humorous manner. He wishes to highlight the fun and positive side of a white-collar’s work life and that his art is a reminder for everyone to slow down and relax in this fast-paced city.
