Li Wai Han

The works of Li Wai Han (Yedda) are created by exploring and reflecting on human behaviour and perceptions of life. she believes that by reflecting on the meaning of human behaviour, people can deepen the understanding of themselves. Moreover, human thinking and behaviours not only affect individuals’ life but can even change social development.

Yedda’s work is simple and colourful and she loves to use different visual symbols to guide the readers. In her works, a red-nose egg character, “Dada”, often appears. Through the unreasonable situations of the protagonist on the way to find a home, it reveals how the protagonist faces problems and makes decisions. In real life, people often ignore unreasonable situations even if these situations are against their values because factors such as human desire cause us to accept this situation. Therefore, Yedda uses simple visual language and inspiring stories to make the artwork approachable, aiming to encourage people to reflect on these issues. Yedda Li is a Hong Kong artist and illustrator. She focuses on media art and graphic design, and she likes to use illustration to create artworks with storytelling elements.

李慧嫻主要專注於平面設計和媒體藝術,她探索和反思人類的行為,並通過對生活的看法而進行創作。她認為反思人類的行為可以加深對自己的理解,因為人類的思維和行為不僅影響個人的生活,甚至可以改變社會的發展。

她的作品簡約而具有故事性,她的作品經常出現一個紅鼻子「野蛋」的人物,以此反映日常生活中所遇到的事情,引起人們的共鳴,並希望藉此引發人們反思各種經常被我們忽視的不合理情況。

In 2003, there was a lot of misfortune in Hong Kong.

That year, a little girl lived in No. 423 partitioned apartments in a Tang Building with her father.

She faced in an unfamiliar place and society alone and was filled with panic and uneasiness.

In her growth, she was affected by bad experiences.
She buried those things in a small corner of her heart.
She was eager to lay down the bad memories one day.

2003年的香港是個多事之年。

那一年,小女孩與父親生活在唐樓423號劏房內⋯⋯
她獨自面對陌生的空間,身處在恐慌、不安所充斥的社會。
在成長路上,這些記憶一直纏繞着小女孩,她把它們埋藏在內心的小角落,渴望著有一天能夠把它們放下。
