Tribe of Many Colors: Paintings by Prodip Recap
Prodip is a Hong Kong-based painter, illustrator and graphic designer. Best known as the bassist of the controversial Cantonese hip-hop group LMF, Prodip studied graphic design and has combined a career in music with experimental art. From the 1980s working across media, Prodip designed underground concert posters, flyers and CD covers, later producing striking visuals for leading international and local brands. His artwork is peopled with tribes of hybrid aliens and draws on traditions of street art, cartoons and pop subcultures that challenge the boundaries of conventional art-making. Exhibiting in the charming 100-year-old annex outhouse at the Hong Kong Musuem of Medical Sciences, “Tribe of Many Colors” is Prodip’s first solo exhibition of paintings, having opening on June 3, 2011. Showcased were over 25 works highlighting his visions and explorations of the extraterrestrial world, most of them never seen publicly before. Take a look into the exhibition below.
