ABOUT VIC & HER EXHIBITION
Two years ago, a friend invited Chau Man to paint on decks for his shop’s opening, that was the beginning of her drawing on the deck, not only skating the deck.
As a pioneer of girl skater in China, over 10 years, Chau Man’s life attitude is just like the sides of decks – being a touch girl skater, highly self – definition, brave, just like the black griptape side of the decks; At the same time, just like the endless possibilities of graphic of the decks, sometimes it’s the combination of multi colors, sometimes it’s dull letters arrangement, sometimes it’s a crah of different elements.
A deck, is a life experience.
This time, Chau Man shows her attitude by the paintings on the decks again: multi-eye monster hunting in city, weird cloud devouring the sky, in the world of skating, everything is possible, life is full of fantasies and imagination, life is full of jumping, flying, falling, injuries, pains, glory and acclaim. Here, Chau Man, a very experienced artist, is telling you by her decks and paintings, some beauties, only can be seen by people when you jump high enough in crowd, just like the other side of decks.
