This first monograph on the work of Howie Tsui documents a multi-media exhibition centered upon his large-scale drawings and wall paintings. Presented in the form of Ming Dynasty scrolls, the work is informed by Asian ghost stories, Buddhist hell scrolls, Hong Kong vampire films and neo-conservative propaganda. Questioning ideas of identity and cultural assimilation through the subversive mode of the horror fable, Tsui imagines fabulous landscapes peopled by monsters and demons whose grotesque character is offset by the exquisite refinement of his drawing and painting.
