ERIC SO

Hong Kong | B. 1968

From working in the advertising industry in the 90's to becoming a multi-media artist and creator; from hosting personal exhibitions to making himself exposed to new areas in the world of artwork, Eric So’s “The Art of Bruce Lee” world tour brought him huge success and fame throughout the world.

After 2000, he has used action figurines as the medium of creation to showcase his art and to release all kinds of whimsy. With realistic engraving techniques and unique styles of cartoon design, the combination of these two extremes has established the new term "Designer Toy".

In addition to the creation of action figurines, he has led the trend in cross-border creation across the world: fashion clothing, eyewear accessories, record packaging, stage design, chocolate, and so on, reflecting the attitude of "life needs art, art is everywhere" in human lives.

Due to the fascinating work of a series of "So Fun", "So Fun" has also become the universal name for Eric. It shows that his personality and works are inseparable, which is a successful example of how artists and their works merge.

In Eric So’s creation, he tries to add the element of business into art, using art to smoothen the hard edges of commerce and the rationality it brings; just like our Chinese yin and yang theory – one yin and one yang, acting as an equaliser and creating an elegant coexistence.

To date, Eric So is a full-time artist and creative director of Papamamason. His art is rooted in Hong Kong and is the core of his unique thinking and creation of art that is spreading to the whole world.
