Sonya FU Man Yi (b.1982) is a visual artist from Hong Kong. Growing up in the former British Colony where East meets West, Fu is
influenced by both Oriental and Western culture.

Starting from 2010, Fu has exhibited in galleries and international art fairs across Hong Kong, China, America, Australia and Europe. Fu's
work has been featured in many art publications including Curvy, Laminate Most Wanted and the Semi-Permanent art books.

In 2011, Fu was endorsed by Semi-Permanent Hong Kong as a notable and emerging artist. In the same year, Fu was awarded with
Perspective Magazine's '40 Under 40' which celebrates top young creative talent throughout Asia.
Fu's chosen medium - digital painting - encompasses an intricate technique which Fu paints with very detailed and delicate brushwork. The
finished digital artwork is produced as limited edition archival prints for a broader audience and collectors to enjoy and acquire the work. Fu
has recently employed new printing methods such as Diasec and 3D Lenticular, these exquisite processes further enrich the depth and colors
in Fu's vibrant digital delights,

Being heavily inspired by her dreams and spirituality, Fu blends her subject matters with symbolic metaphors and the unseen beauties she
encountered during Hypnagogic state - the transitional state between wakefulness and sleep. All of this combined introduces an eerie and
obscure atmosphere in Fu's visual narratives.

"Art is a powerful visual language and creating art is a calming and therapeutic process. I would like to share with people my dreamscape, its
beauty and its oddity. It might be an eerie creature, a whimsical scenery or a disturbed beauty who speaks words of wisdom - they are all
embodiments of my subconscious mind. If my work manages to stir emotions and provoke thoughts, then I am doing the right thing as an
artist - creating and conveying emotion." says Fu.
