Tang Kwong San is the recipient of the Fresh Trend 2019 Art Gradates Joint Exhibition Contemporary by Angela Li Award. The award-winning work is a diptych graphite drawing titled Bedroom. This monochromatic work encases a tense atmosphere of melancholy; the scene of a bedroom is almost artificially constructed, objects depicted are frozen in time and transformed in meaning. Bedroom is a journey to San’s inner world, reflecting his longing for connectedness and bondedness with the family. Alongside the diptych drawing are San’s oil paintings and installation, where the artist focuses on exploring the intersections of cultural identity and the systematization of social experience.
