Hong Kong Artist: Dive Into the Mind of Mattia Lau

Mattia Lau is a digital artist hailing from Hong Kong but currently studying in the UK. Mattia’s journey with art began in the winter of 2018, and he pulls inspiration from the variety of emotions encountered in life to construct his signature colorful landscapes. These works suggest a character on a triumphant journey through many vibrant atmospheres, with the occasional appearance of his cat. Mattia typically selects a bright and vivid color together with a muted, darker color to create visual depth in his evocative sceneries, and takes somewhere between 1-4 hours to create each artwork. Let’s dive into the mind of Mattia, one of Wall vs. Me's Featured Artist.

What inspires you when you are creating a new piece?

When creating a new piece, I generally focus on a mood, theme or a scene that I would like to portray in my own vision. My work is mostly inspired from the artists I admire and my own aspiration to improve.

Is there an artwork you are most proud of? Why?

From all the artwork I have created. I don't believe that any single-one would be classified as a favorite. I aspire to improve with every piece I create and to grow as an artist.

Is there an important event in your life that changed the way you think about being an artist?

During school, I had a friend who started creating artwork on a computer using a drawing tablet. I always knew you could create artwork digitally but to see it being created with my own eyes inspired me to start doing it myself. I don't think I have had anything important to change how I view being an artist. But rather my view is that you don't need to be anything special to start.

Is there an element of art you enjoy working with most? Why?

I love working with vibrant colors. Through art, you can experiment with different colors and ideas that can bring more life into a lifeless scene.

Who would you say is your favorite artist and why?

One of the artists on top of my favorites list is Chin Fong. He has an amazing art style and his work as an environment artist is jaw-dropping.

For some of our audience who love your work and want to be an artist themselves, what advice would you give them?

Personally, I believe the two biggest hurdles for an aspiring artist is to start and to consistently practice their craft. Those who believe that art is only meant for the talented and gifted don't account for the hours spent learning the basics and developing their own sense of taste and experience.
