Sonya Fu

Sonya FU Man Yi (b.1982 in Hong Kong) is a Chinese visual artist based in Hong Kong.

Growing up in the former British Colony where East meets West, Fu is influenced by both Oriental and Western culture.

Sonya Fu (Chinese name 傅敏兒 Fu Man Yi, b. 1982) belongs to a new generation of Hong Kong artists, call them the ‘cyberpunk’ surrealists, young artists attempting to insert themselves into a world post Blade Runner, computer games, sci-fi fantasy and manga-inspired art.

Her digital artwork printed on Diassec often presents a young girl or woman either dreaming or existing in a parallel world, a virtual universe in which dreams and reality fuse.

Inspired by music, spiritual beliefs, Buddhist or new age, Sonya Fu’s magical, virtual creatures are endearing and haunting at the same time, dreamers always.

A self-taught artist, trained as a graphic designer, she has exhibited in New York, Hong Kong, Berlin, Melbourne, Pasadenaand with magazines such as JET, and CURVY 8. This is her first solo show in AP Contemporary with the newest collection of Diasec work.
