Influenced by the photomontages of the Dadaists, Alexis Ip developed his own technique which he refers to as FOTOMO. FOTOMO is a combination of 'Photo' and 'Model'; simply put, he models his photographs in a 3-D arrangement to create a perspective in a medium that is usually perceived flat.
Alexis Ip’s creation is hand-crafted from a collage of numerous photographs depicting old neighbourhoods, street scenes and the celebrations of festivals. Trivial stories within a big city are contained in his model of micro-photos.
His FOTOMO work “The Blue House” and his pottery work “The Old Memories” were selected in the Hong Kong Arts Biennial 2005 and some of his work has been acquired by the Hong Kong museum. His FOTOMO work “Hong Kong Image, Fa Yuen Street” is the winner of Hong Kong Contemporary Arts Award 2009.
Alexis Ip was born in 1966, and is currently a secondary school Visual Arts teacherin Hong Kong and is currently a secondary school Visual Arts teacher.
