Tactile Surrealism: Tang Yau Hoong
Tang Yau Hoong is a Graphic Designer based in Malaysia. His work is immediately striking, as he makes use of negative space, surrealism, and visual metaphors — all framed with bright colours and impeccable layout. His images have a sense of humor, and themes that immediately resonate with the viewer, keeping them locked on the image.
He has several series exploring different themes: Playing cards, light, negative space (to name a few). Tang Yau Hoong's work has a playful, almost tactile quality. It is a great example of a very graphic style that translates beautifully to print, and I would happily have several of these hanging on my walls!
