Art exhibition: Daido Moriyama at Simon Lee Gallery

Finally, the third and final exhibition that I visited in the Pedder Building. It was a photographic exhibition that my friends had recommended: Searching Journeys by the well-known Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama. He is widely recognised for his innovative, highly personal and unvarnished depictions of urban life. He is known for back-street boxers, strippers and… Continue reading Art exhibition: Daido Moriyama at Simon Lee Gallery

Art exhibition: Billy Childish at Lehmann Maupin

Ignorant me... I have never explored the depths of the Pedder Building. Hence I have never come across the gallery of Lehmann Maupin. What a shame! I was pleasantly surprised by the exhibition of new paintings by British artist Billy Childish. This is his first show in Hong Kong and I loved how the large-scale… Continue reading Art exhibition: Billy Childish at Lehmann Maupin

Art exhibition: Spiritual as Mountains at Pearl Lam Galleries

I enjoy exploring art galleries - but I often ran out of time to see all the current shows and exhibitions. So I was lucky that all the rain had cut short one of my hikes (a repeat of Wilson Trail Stage 3 with my friend Monica) so I could visit the Pearl Lam Galleries… Continue reading Art exhibition: Spiritual as Mountains at Pearl Lam Galleries

Visit to the Affordable Art Fair 2014

Wow - I can't believe it, I actually made it to the preview evening of the Affordable Art Fair in Hong Kong this year. I was worried that I would not make it again, as I have been quite busy with work. But I was lucky, I finished almost on time yesterday and my friends… Continue reading Visit to the Affordable Art Fair 2014

Edward Ho’s travel journal in watercolour

One of the most amazing artworks that I've seen recently was at the Reveal exhibition at ArtisTree. One of the architects that showed his skill is Edward S. T. Ho - and he is an amazing watercolour painter. It is quite unbelievable that he only started to paint in 2009 when you see his artwork.… Continue reading Edward Ho’s travel journal in watercolour

Reveal and M+ at ArtisTree in Tai Koo

An almost unknown but very creative exhibition space is ArtisTree in Tai Koo. ArtisTree is a pun for the original word “Artistry” which means “artistic workmanship, effect or quality, artistic ability”. I've been there a few times, first to see the Frank Gehry exhibition about the Opus building and then to see Reveal. Reveal was… Continue reading Reveal and M+ at ArtisTree in Tai Koo

Eddie Lau and Bruce Lee at the Sha Tin Heritage Museum

It is a little further away from Central, but it is definitely worth the trip. What am I talking about? The Sha Tin Heritage Museum. I have been a few times now and I always enjoyed it. For instance, the Fabergé exhibition last year was real eye-candy. In 2013 the highlight was the Eddie Lau… Continue reading Eddie Lau and Bruce Lee at the Sha Tin Heritage Museum
