Ink on paper
Mr Gentle studied visual arts at Hong Kong Baptist University and spent a year as an exchange student in Italy. Mr Gentle is proficient in various art media including ink, acrylics, colour pens and screen prints. His works often present image duplicates and combine the characteristics of different objects to create a weird world.
This series of illustrations employs metaphors to present a love story of two people searching for love, meeting each other and falling in love. By depicting a city as a forest, and searching and yearning as arms stretching out towards the moon, the artist allows the two to become one.
