Mei Kei Ho
MeiKei Ho (B. 1993, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) graduated with a Diploma in Fine Art at Dasein Academy of Art.
In her series of work she bears lesson for us all in a strong rhetoric on the value of education, the future of our youth and how it manifests in society.
The body of work recalls notion of raw innocence of a childhood drawings. Her paintings are composed of strong tropes of repetition and segmented into naive aesthetic values which give clues to the exhibition’s main theme, education and childhood.
In the fashion of a typical classroom she will light up her audience with questions of right and wrong behind today’s educational system and societal pressures to what this will hold on the future of our youth. An observation of her works will lead to a healthy debate which sum up to the exhibition title ‘100 Markah = A= ?’.
‘’My work incorporated the notion of child play. Play is a right of childhood, it is spontaneous and fun. It also representing a crucial aspect of children’s physical, intellectual and societal development. It help in children education, social skills and therapeutic benefits too. My work revisited child play, it is an innocence play in just like them during the process without any worry and commitment. It is as simple as it is.’’ — MeiKei Ho
