About Johnson Cheung - Shing Tsang


Born in Hong Kong, Tsang’s works mostly employ realist sculptural techniques accompanied by surrealist imaginations. Tsang specialises in ceramics, stainless steel sculptures, as well as public art projects. Tsang especially loves to capture the beauty of versatile splashes with vivid sculptural expressions. 


Johnson Tsang's works have been exhibited in the United States, Denmark, Italy, Switzerland, Korea, Taiwan, China and Hong Kong. In 2011 and 2012, Tsang’s porcelain sculptures were awarded the "Special Prize" of "Korea Gyeonggi International Ceramix Biennale 2011 International Competition" and "Grand Prize" of "2012 Taiwan International Ceramics Biennale" respectively. He is the first Chinese artist who received both of these two prestigious international awards. In 2009, Tsang received “The Secretary for Home Affairs' Commendation” from the Government of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region for his outstanding achievements in international art events.


Artist Statement


Johnson Tsang , a Hong Kong-based sculptor who has received international acclaim , blends realist sculpting techniques with surrealist imagery. Tsang gives everyday objects anthropomorphic qualities and instilling them with a sense of movement and fluidity. At times comical, at other times sentimental, his creations never fail to inspire a sense of wonder in viewers.
