During the craziness that was Art Basel Hong Kong, one of the events we attended was How & Nosm’s debut & celebration of their Sake Art Bottle at HK’s Yardbird as well as the unveiling of two site specific murals. As previewed, this unique collaboration project fused the restaurant’s artist sake line with the iconic color & styling of the German born twins. The project featured a silkscreen process that imprints the artwork by the brothers on the front of the collectible bottle. Hand-signed and hand-numbered, the bottle was produced in a […]

While in town Basel Week Hong Kong, we made sure to stop by the local branch of Galerie Perrotin to take in the work of Ryan McGinley. Vertical Color of Sound is a nice introduction of the New York-based artist to fans in Asia as it features a election of his different series of work. Included are large-scale photographs of his signature summer road trip with friends, his use of fireworks, and his look at night skies. Discuss Ryan McGinley here.
With so much art on display at the premier art far in Asia, we had to split our coverage into two parts. You can see the first set of images here if you missed it (along with a quick first look), then come back and check out round two from Art Basel Hong Kong. One of the highlights of the fair is seen above – the Anti-Gun Gun large-scale sculpture installation by Beijing artist Wang Luyan that one may want to think twice about firing. If you […]
During Basel HK week, another major show we hit was from British artist D*Face (interviewed) at Hong Kong’s Above Second Gallery. Presented by Coates & Scarry, the solo entitled Honestly Dishonest featured 18 fresh works focusing on society’s increasing appetite for information. D put together layers of the commercial output which bombard our minds on a daily basis, creating something new and different in and of itself. The sold out show was filled with Basel week attendees and fans. Next, we’ll bring you some of the outdoor murals he created while he was in town. Discuss D*Face here.
After bringing you a first look at Art Basel Hong Kong a couple weeks ago, we now return with a more comprehensive look at the premier art fair in Asia.

The event is always an eye opener for us as we get to learn about new exciting artists from Asia while still enjoying some of the more familiar […]
