Jovial Yeung

represented

Born in 1986, Jovial Yeung lives and works in Hong Kong. She is a visual artist working in the media of glass, mixed media and installation.

Jovial Yeung has a passion for experimentation with materials: her training in studio glass art combined with her experience in metalsmithing and antiques restoration, result in unique mixed media artworks, bi-dimensional or sculptural. In particular, the distinctive approach to flameworking she developed to make extremely thin glass pins and affix them on canvas requires a very high level of craftsmanship.

Jovial Yeung’s artworks are delicate and impeccably presented, yet they convey strong messages about personal life experiences and environmental issues.
