Born in Hong Kong in 1974, Tse Yim On obtained his BA and MFA degrees from the Department of Fine Arts, the Chinese University of Hong Kong. At 24, he was awarded the Hong Kong Urban Council Fine Art Award. He has participated extensively in various art exhibitions, and his works have been collected by the Hong Kong Museum of Art and private collectors. He grew up in a typical Hong Kong housing estate and has been a witness to drastic political changes and socio-economic transitions.

Tse’s art is not confined to the canvas, it starts with his lifestyle, with eccentric vision and eclectic mix of cultural signs and it could end nowhere, or everywhere.  He overtly exposes his indulgence in erotic fantasies while blending them with socio-political icons, presenting a curious hybrid that brings forth a new taste in contemporary Hong Kong art. 

謝炎安1974年生於香港,於香港中文大學藝術系畢業,獲學士及藝術碩士學位。1998年獲頒香港市政局藝術獎。他曾參與多個藝術展覽,作品廣受注目,並獲得香港藝術館及私人收藏家的徵求及收藏。他在典型的公共屋邨成長,並同時見證了香港近三十年政治、經濟、文化的急速蛻變。他與同時期成長的少年一樣,在學生時代深受日本動漫文化薰陶,對當時的動漫電玩潮流幾近沉迷喪志的地部。到了迷惘的青春期,謝炎安又迷上本土漫畫和日本色情錄像,藝術家由此覓得志趣與早期的身份認同。他不單對普及文化及次文化有敏銳觸角,也相當關心一己身處的政治環境。作品中滿布的色情幻想和看似荒誕的意符拼貼,有玩世不恭的意味,一方面顯現藝術家的個人視野,也反映了1970年代香港出生、經歷兩國管治的香港人對現實感到無奈,轉而縱情玩樂的心態。
