2020 Feels...
September 23, 2020

現居於巴塞隆拿的Louis Otis身兼插畫家、動畫師及藝術總監的三職,微時於香港度過不少年頭的他,移居後與香港的交流卻不曾中斷。是次宀畫廊十分高興帶來Louis Otis首個個人展覽「2020 Feels…」,以厚棉水彩紙形式,展出十幅限量版本的電子插畫畫本。展覽將在政府放寬社交距離、宀重開後兩個星期正式開幕。

Louis的畫作往往給人新奇異相之感,有著流麗的色調、充滿的魅力人物角色和富玩味的象徵主義特質,其大膽的美學能瞬間吸引我們的視線,細看之下,每張作品展現的故事,我們總能感到與自身的密切關係。

因Covid-19橫行,我們經歷著充滿動蕩、衝突及不安的一年。全因一件單獨的事件,人與人的距離越走越遠,是我們從未遇見過的。現今能欣賞到Louis的作品,帶給我們安慰和希望。盡管面對著連連不停的壞消息,Louis所做,展示出環境如何困惱,都可以有正面及創意的方法面對。

「2020 Feels…」帶來的,都是富情感或是主題性的作品,部份與當今大氣候有關,而沒關的則提醒我們人生是川流不息的前進。展覽將在政府放寬社交距離、宀重開後兩個星期正式開幕。

Louis 2015年畢業於中央聖馬丁藝術與設計學院,就讀平面設計及動態影像。商業合作包括 Apple、Carhartt、Die Zeit、The Independent、Culture Trip、AJ+

宀 Gallery emerges from the second round of social distancing with 2020 Feels... by Louis Otis. Louis is an Illustrator, Animator and Art Director based in Barcelona. He spent his early life in Hong Kong and remains connected to the city. 宀 Gallery is proud to present his first solo exhibition with 10 limited edition digital illustrations printed on archival paper.

Louis captured our attention with his whimsical illustrations that feature beautifully balanced colours, charming characters and playful symbolism. His bold aesthetic imminently draws the eye, but upon closer reading, each drawing reveals a narrative that feels highly relatable.

This year we have all experienced uncertainty, conflict and fear due to Covid-19. We have never felt so far apart while being affected by a single occurrence. Seeing Louis’s works during this time is comforting and hopeful. Despite the bombardment of bad news, Louis’s practice shows us it is possible to have a creative and positive response.

2020 Feels... brings you a mix of emotions and topics, some with relevance to current affairs and some without (as a reminder that life goes on).

Louis graduated in 2015 from Central Saint Martins School of The Arts and Design (London) studying Graphic Design and Moving Image. His past, clients include Apple, Carhartt, Die Zeit, The Independent, Culture Trip and AJ+.
