In the second-floor gallery, join UB Art Galleries for an aritst talk with Wuon-Gean Ho. Ho is a printmaker and artist based in London, UK, and currently the Department of Art Breverman Visiting Artist. Her exhibition, The Heart’s Sight, is on view in the second-floor gallery at UB Art Galleries. The exhibition brings together a broad selection of works that span the past 15 years —including prints, artists’ books, and short films—all united by strong narratives: driven by the idea of remembering and remembrance, and engaging with the notion of an inner vision.

Artist Bio

Wuon-Gean Ho was born in Oxford, UK, of Peranakan Chinese heritage. She graduated with a BA in History of Art from Cambridge University, and a professional license as a veterinarian, before taking up a Japanese Government Scholarship in 1998 to study Japanese woodblock printmaking in Kyoto Seika University, Japan under the tutelage of renowned artist Akira Kurosaki. She later completed an MA in Printmaking at the Royal College of Art, graduating with a distinction in 2016. Ho has taken part in numerous international print conferences in diverse roles including keynote speaker, exhibitor, panel chair and curator. She was news editor for the UK based publication, Printmaking Today, for five years, and was the founding editor of the IMPACT Printmaking Journal, an academic peer-reviewed journal that she created for the Centre for Print Research, University of West of England, Bristol, UK, where she held a research associate post from 2019–23.  

Ho exhibits her prize-winning works widely in the UK and abroad, most recently in a solo exhibition in 2023, Before I Forget, at the Hong Kong Open Printshop, SAR China. In 2022 she visited five US universities: University of Charlotte, North Carolina; University of Tennessee, Knoxville, TN; University of Indiana, Bloomington, IN; University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT; and University of Hawai’i, Hilo staying a week in each of the latter four places: giving talks, making projects with students, and creating new works. She lives and works in London, UK, where she is currently transforming her tiny living room into the very first studio of her own.
