Hong Kong Museum of Art is now closed

The Hong Kong Museum of Art used to be one of my 'hangout' places, at least on grey and rainy days. It was always easy to get to, just a hop away on the star ferry. Now unfortunately this is not possible anymore. The iconic (but also quite ugly) building will be closed for the… Continue reading Hong Kong Museum of Art is now closed

Art exhibition: Balthus at the Gagosian Gallery

I always thought that the galleries in the Pedder Building would focus on contemporary, modern art - and so I was surprised to see so many classic paintings and drawings at the Gagosian Gallery recently. They looked like old classics, and then I realised that they were works by the famous painter Balthus. Balthus used… Continue reading Art exhibition: Balthus at the Gagosian Gallery

Art exhibition: The Art of Qiu Deshu at Pearl Lam Galleries

One of my favourite past times is to stroll through the Pedder Street Building and visit the various galleries... and every time I do this, I discover some great artwork that I have not been familiar with.

The other day I went to the Hong Kong Design Gallery in the exhibition centre, and I stumbled across a photography exhibition which was really fascinating and interesting.

It shows scenes from every day life in Hong Kong - fruit stalls, little shops, street… Continue reading Art exhibition: Artist Alexis Ip at the Hong Kong Design Gallery

My highlights from Art Basel in Hong Kong 2015

I was contemplating whether or not to write this post - there are so many Art Basel in Hong Kong articles out there, but then I thought everyone has different views and opinions. My take is that it is a great opportunity to see so many great masters of the 20th and 21st century in… Continue reading My highlights from Art Basel in Hong Kong 2015
