About this artwork

"Fortune Prosperity Longevity" is a continuation of Stevie's Mickey series, first inspired by his previous solo exhibition "Exploration of Mickey" in Manhattan, NY in 2021. The artwork shows a playful representation of Mickey, alongside Daffy and Goofy, with the Cantonese text "福祿壽", which translates to "fortune, prosperity, long life". This particular work draws inspiration from Stevie's grandfather, a Chinese immigrant to Canada, and the use of Cantonese text instead of the usual English quotes in Stevie's other works is a tribute to his heritage. The artwork, made with acrylic paint, resin and found objects, is visually striking and comes with a certificate of authenticity.

Stevie Chow's art invites us to live our lives to the full. Using acrylic paint, resin and found objects, his large-scale paintings are fascinating and serve as a visual reminder of the importance of pursuing fulfilment. A self-taught artist, Stevie's work is inspired by his childhood, which was marked by a spirit of enquiry and curiosity about what makes life truly fulfilling.

Since leaving the corporate world to pursue his passion, Stevie's art has caught the attention of influential entrepreneurs in the United States, leading to two successful solo exhibitions in New York and nearly a million dollars in charity auctions at the end of 2021. Despite struggling with substance abuse in 2022, Stevie has emerged with a renewed sense of purpose and a new collection of works that show his continued growth and development as an artist.
