Works by Howie Tsui
Works by Howie Tsui. "...Ho Yan (Howie) Tsui was born on January 19, 1978 in Hong Kong. Several months later, he and his mother rejoined their family in Lagos, Nigeria. During these nascent years, Howie: a) went on safaris in Kenya, b) got a concussion on the London Bridge, c) confronted ghosts in a haunted hotel in Manilla, and d) during a near-fatal high fever, had hallucinations of ceiling-piercing rain that showered upon apparitions of Disney characters. In 1983, his family immigrated to Thunder Bay, Ontario, where he began his assimilation into western culture through street hockey and heavy metal music. Tsui's 'suspended adolescent' artistic approach is informed by such experiences. Tsui received his BFA in 2002 from the University of Waterloo and is currently painting and illustrating in Ottawa, Canada."
