Artwork at the Sai Ying Pun MTR Station

The Island line was extended to the East at the end of 2014, with Sai Ying Pun station being the final one to be opened in March 2015 (here's a recap of the opening). I have travelled there are few times now and I find it a very interesting station. Not only do you have… Continue reading Artwork at the Sai Ying Pun MTR Station

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

My highlights from Art Central

Art Central is own until tomorrow... and I had a chance to visit it already yesterday. It is a new contemporary art fair showcasing new talent next to established artists and galleries, and it takes place in a huge tent on the new Central Harbourfront. More than 75 international galleries are taking part and they… Continue reading My highlights from Art Central

Art exhibition: Landscape as Cultural Self-portrait at Hanart TZ Gallery

One visit to the Pedder Street building provides a lot of input for several blog posts... there are so many galleries in the building, there's always something new to see and discover. This time, my recent visit uncovered a new gallery that I have never visited before: Hanart TZ Gallery. This is one of the… Continue reading Art exhibition: Landscape as Cultural Self-portrait at Hanart TZ Gallery

Art exhibition: Ben Quilty at Pearl Lam Galleries

I've been lucky that I managed to see so many exhibitions in the Pedder Building last week... but I've been unlucky that I've not had enough time to write about them. Again, an interesting exhibition at the Pearl Lam Galleries that I really enjoyed but it already closed its doors (on March 1) so you… Continue reading Art exhibition: Ben Quilty at Pearl Lam Galleries

Art exhibition: Blackwelder at the Gagosian Gallery

While I just barely managed to write in time about yesterday's last day of the Vik Muniz exhibition, I clearly missed the boat on the Blackwelder one at the Gagosian Gallery. That happens easily when you have a small baby at home and are busy entertaining overseas visitors! Last week I saw so many great… Continue reading Art exhibition: Blackwelder at the Gagosian Gallery

Art exhibition: Soulmate at YY9 Gallery

I am a bit annoyed with myself that I discovered this exhibition late - that's because it is hosted at the YY9 Gallery in Chai Wan, which is in the Far East of Hong Kong Island, and it is open only on Wed-Sat. So I had to find some time to go there - but… Continue reading Art exhibition: Soulmate at YY9 Gallery
