YOK & EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN

Yok Joaquin
1998年出生於菲律賓馬尼拉,畢業於聖道頓馬士皇家大學建築學院。
建築背景的Yok擅長以清晰的線條與簡約的幾何圖形搭配上插畫感十足的畫面處理風格—-在他有別以往傳統的繪畫語彙下,觀者能夠直接面對畫作本身而非游離於繁雜華麗的學術評析;卡漫風的太陽與雲朵、擁有人類表情卻似狗的奇幻生物以及身體律動感豐富的裸女,他將日常生活更加單純明朗化,好似不服膺於社會上的俗世重擔,在活潑充溢著童趣的作品底下有著某種超脫凡俗卻純粹為我之感,如若凱斯哈林曾說過:「藝術為眾人而存在,藝術是生活,生活即是藝術。」

Born in Manila, Philippines in 1998, Yok Joaquin graduated from University. Of Santo Tomas ,College Of Architecture. Based on his architectural background, Yok is expert in combining clean lines and simple figures with illustration style. Under his distinctive painting vocabulary which is different from the tradition—like the effusive sun and clouds, the dog-like fantasy creatures with human expression, and the naked women with pure body rhythm. The viewer can assimilate into the artworks itself directly instead of getting lost in complex and resplendent art criticism. Behind the absurd vigor and childishness, there is a sense of unworldliness. As in Keith Haring’s words,’’ Art is for everyone, art is life, and life is art.’’
