About the artwork

This sculpture features a family of polar bears, with their white colouring and curved lives emphasising their gentleness and purity, in addition to the pastel-coloured ice cream. The work is sculpted to perfection, with its finishing further reinforcing the notion of purity. Characteristic of his layered style, Byu anthropomorphizes his subject matter, depicting the animals supporting each other and interacting in ways that are seemingly humane in nature. Through his tender depictions of animals and a better world, Byu presents a whimsical contrast to issues of environmental degradation and consumerism, leaving viewers with further thoughts to contemplate.

About the artist

Byu is an excellent fable teller. His continuous "animal-human" motif is a metaphorical interpretation of modern society, that brings subjects that have been ignored or considered secondary into the foreground, and by doing so he expands the meaning of his visual language into reality. The meaning in his works of art are not predetermined or interpreted in one way, but their potential interpretations become abundant as the artist deals with the proposed issues in an approach to allow various experiences and interpretations based on the viewer's perception. Therefore, his fables are not just illustrating the pressing environmental crisis, but are also softly reminding us that we should take care of every corner of our life, and uphold the memory of animals and fauna that have vanished at the hands of our human actions.
