George Ho graduated from Harvard University and was conferred an A.B. in Visual and Environmental Studies in 1990. Following that, he proceeded with an Intensive Program in Painting, Drawing and Sculpture at the New York Studio School from 1992 to 1995. He established his personal painting studio in New York City in 1995 and relocated the studio to Taiwan in 2004.
The majority of Ho’s early works were paintings well combined with scripts, in which the handwritten letters shown at liberty were just like ciphers to solve the mystery of each work, and further conveying the details of stories from life. Another key motive of Ho’s creation was to employ colors in golden ratio, block-shaped patterns in proportion and piling up the pigments, so as to make the works take on refined and harmonic compositions; meanwhile, the indistinctly mystic characteristics exuded from the paintings had become his artistic language and remarkable texture. Moreover, the artist hoped that his making of art could bring the viewers impressive and positive energy.
As far as creativity is concerned, George Ho’s art constantly transmits positive thinking and energy, not only teems with penetration but also makes more and more viewers break away from the materialistic shackles and return to their inner world. For Ho, the making of art can be immeasurably and vividly converted into an epochal way of spiritual formation.
