For this painting, I decided to choose a hyena to represent greed, although my original source for symbolism was a frog. I just could not find a suitable image of frog that looked aesthetically pleasing. The hyena is perfected suited little creatures for the role. I have on the upper right the words by Shakespeare: 'Vaulting ambition, which o'erleaps itself, and falls on the other'. To the upper left, to what appears a red ballons, are orchids, again symbols of greed and opulence.

Norm Yip (葉灃) was born in Canada in 1963 by Chinese parents. After studying fine art in Saskatchewan and architecture in Toronto, he moved to Hong Kong where began working as an architect. In 1999, he decided to transition into fine art and photography, following his deeper passion into his personal interests. He formed a collective called Melo-Melo Artist Alliance with several friends. It was then that his journey into art began. Oscillating between photography as a main source of income and painting as a hobby, he began to assert more attention and time to the latter. He has exhibited mostly in Hong Kong in group exhibitions, yet has recently exhibited in Zurich, Switzerland and The Other Art Fair in New York.
