Martin & CoCo
"forget anxieties in reality and recall the precious moments in life"
CM is a combination of two local emerging artists, Coco and Martin. They present their unique vision of nature by a collaboration of contemporary art and digital art.

CoCo & Martin 是由兩位本地新進藝術家蔡靈桓及葉祉添組成，他們以超現實的動植物日常作主題，透過傳統繪畫與新興數碼藝術，構建出獨特的世界觀——「動植物園的四季」。見微知著，以小見大，CM的作品展現不同動植物的故事，帶出日常的生活道理。CM 曾於 2021 年「GAC 灣仔 Pop-up 藝術展覽」展出雞蛋花系列作品。 修畢於香港演藝學院繪景學系，葉祉添深受舞台及繪景藝術影響，創作以塑膠彩為主。2018 年，他前往日本橫濱並跟隨藝術家深掘隆介學習，同年作品〈Firework〉於「山海在城：Applied Design Exhibition 2018」展出。2022年，葉祉添獲黑白繪畫大賽公開組金獎。 蔡靈桓畢業於香港都會大學創意藝術學系，擅長於數位繪圖及多媒體藝術創作。2020年，她參與製作的動畫作品〈說謊和蛋糕〉，於同年的「香港公開大學創意藝術畢業展 2020」及次年的 K11 Uᵗʰ KLUB 一月放映會中播出。
