Bao Ho is a Hong Kong-born and based artist. She has been drawing since her childhood, has worked as a graphic designer for several years, and after travelling to Milan where she met a local artist and introduced her to the street art world, she then came back to her city Hong Kong to settle and became a full-time artist.
Since her come back in 2014, Bao has been painting walls more than actively. She always has a new project coming. Indeed, she’s been commissioned and collaborated with Nike, Google, Microsoft, Maserati and more. But aside from these projects, she also works on her own art pieces as she feels the need to draw and paint. It is like breathing and a need for her. She gets back home from her day and starts drawing and creating her own imaginary world.
A humble, creative and talented artist, when she can, she grabs her painting or spray paint and goes on to paint in the streets of Hong Kong. Her own imagination brings her to create a whole new world with her humans and animal characters, fantastic creatures and different sceneries that we mostly encounter in our daily lives in Hong Kong. Bringing us in her dimension, we can notice a remarkable doodling and manga drawing style that she does freehand each and single time. It is quite amazing to see her when she is in action on a wall, on paper or even on her iPad.
Bao still develops new techniques by using new materials, new mediums to express herself and surprises everyone. Also, she continues to travel a lot with projects in Australia, China, England or Taiwan as being invited for festivals or commissioned walls.
Bao has exhibited in several Hong Kong’s art galleries and has been recently commissioned by the Museum of Athens. This young Hong Kong artist has a bright future ahead to explore many more mediums and welcoming us into her world.
