Major Fair Sponsor: LG Electronics & BoConcept
Highlight Galleries – Chelesa Art Co. Ltd. and THE SHOPHOUSE
Chelesa Art Co. Ltd. (Hong Kong/Shanghai) presents works by Wong Chai Lok (1924 – 2022). Wong Chai Lok is a famous Hong Kong educator, calligrapher and poet. Not only dedicated to promoting calligraphy education and improving the quality of education and vocational education in Hong Kong, he is also accomplished in art. His calligraphy works often combine words with pictures, making the words themselves more intriguing, and also putting more emphasis on the connotations of the words with the visual impact of the graphics. This showcases his distinctive creativity and ingenuity.
THE SHOPHOUSE (Hong Kong) presents works by Zhao Zhao (b.1982). In Zhao's art, he engages with real subjects in multiple mediums and plays with art forms, emphasising the relationship between the individual and the rest of society. His work is developed around the subtle emotional changes that take place as we are confronted with diverse cultural influences. He brings together the expressive methods of contemporary art and traditional culture to create metaphors for people's living circumstances and modern society's real conditions in a globalised world. His work also reflects his attitudes toward the coexistence of collective and individual ideals.
Fine Art Asia 2022's Education Partners, The Ink Society and the Hong Kong Palace Museum, along with L'ÉCOLE Asia Pacific: School of Jewelry Arts will host an Academic Programme of lectures and seminars by art experts from Hong Kong, strengthening academic discussion and interaction between scholars, galleries and collectors.
