A WORLD OF ART COMES TO HONG KONG IN MARCH!
ASIA CONTEMPORARY ART SHOW
March 17 - 20, 2017
Conrad Hong Kong

Browse and buy original paintings, limited editions, sculpture and photography from some of the world's most interesting and promising artists - from emerging and mid-career artists, to those who have already achieved recognition in private and public collections, and at auction.
INTRODUCING CHINA PERSPECTIVES & ARTIST PROJECTS
The 10th edition will unveil several new features including China Perspectives, a collection of works by selected galleries, artists and artist collectives themed around the contemporary Chinese art narrative, and Artist Projects, an entire floor dedicated to painters, sculptors and photographers exhibiting in a solo or joint presentation. The aim of both projects is to bring art and artists together with new and seasoned collectors from across Asia and the world.
FEATURED ARTIST: WATER POON - HONG KONG
Water Poon (b. 1944) is a multi face man - he is an artist, photographer, designer and film director. As an artist Poon is an inspired man, seeing through his singular perspective a world full of stories to be told. Whether its watercolour paintings of rose, the protagonist of Yi Shu's Hong Kong-inspired romantic novels, or mixed media pieces of cities that capture his heart, the artist punctuates his work with expressions of emotion, thoughtfulness and love.
Poon graduated from Hong Kong Polytechnic College with a degree in Graphic Design. He has worked as a photojournalist for various newspapers and magazines and has published many photography albums, art books and travelogues as well as exhibiting his works internationally.
Represented by BLINK Gallery, Hong Kong.
FEATURED ARTIST: MEL BRIGG - SOUTH AFRICA
Mel Brigg (b. 1950) is an eyewitness to tumultuous times. Having lived through a socially and politically turbulent era in his native South Africa, this self-taught painter seeks to express the complexities of the human condition on canvas. His landscapes are moody and emotional; sometimes conveying earthly upheaval other times endless placid skies. Within the vastness of his canvases are sparsely scattered humans, small and fragile - hoping to find a place of light in an often dark world.
Mel began painting in 1979. He has exhibited his work in many solo shows in South Africa, Singapore, Australia and select European cities. His work is held by many public and private collectors, including American actor Keanu Reeves.
Represented by Wentworth Galleries, Australia.
FEATURED ARTIST: XIE KE - HONG KONG
Xie Ke (b. 1955) creates sculptural work that combines images from the past with those in a modern context. He portrays fragments of history in a humorous yet thought-provoking way, combining them with his own critique of today's world. Heroes from Chinese martial arts stories and the golden age of kung fu films defend those in need, returning balance and order to society. In combining Western innovativeness and traditional Chinese design, the artist aims to raise a culturally reflective awareness in the viewer.
Xie studied at the First Institute of Art and Design in Hong Kong and at the Academy of Fine Arts of Tsinghua University in Beijing. Xie has exhibited his work in many solo and group shows across Asia.
Represented by Beijing Central Art Gallery.
NOW AT FABRIK GALLERY
CURRENT EXHIBITION: “limited edition | édition limitée”6 October - 30 November, 2016Prints by Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Damien Hirst and Marc Quinn
Distinct in character, style and artistic medium, presented in this exhibition are individuals whose evolution from humble artist to internationally recognised figure in the art world recounts a larger story of art as an identifiable and accessible brand. Having built their brand persona through a series of thematically unique and distinctive works that have withstood the test of time, these artists have managed to blur the line between art obtainable by the elite and art available to all.
