Mimi Leung - How Are You?

Mimi Leung - exhibition poster

How Are You? is a collection of new work from Mimi Leung.

Mimi Leung was born in Hong Kong and grew up in the UK. Since graduating from the RCA in 2007 Mimi's engagingly colourful and playful images have captured the attention of many. She is currently represented by Big Active.

After two years of back-to-back exhibitions and illustration work, Mimi relocated to the desert lands of and around Alice Springs in January 2010. After a hard few months of struggling to make ends meet, working dingy cafe jobs and pulling pints at a back-packers' bar, she slowly gathered enough materials to set up a basic silkscreen studio at home.

This show features work from her first foray into stencil silkscreen prints as well as the brightly coloured gouache on paper works which she has become known for.

Exhibition runs 9th September to 9th October.
