FEATURED ARTIST: MITCHELL SCHORR - USA
Mitchell Schorr (b.1972, New York) is a world-recognised urban mural painter, having painted 3-D murals around New York's parks for over a decade. The "Da Race" mural series, which began in New York, pits a variety of racing cars against a New York City ice cream truck, with the vehicles exchanging leads, falling behind and catching up again as the race moves from location to location. The ice cream truck represents the feelings of joy and innocence invoked during childhood. In 2005, Schorr created the "Da Race to the East" in Hong Kong, where he incorporated the local Hong Kong taxi into the race.
Schorr attended the Carnegie Mellon School of Art in Pittsburgh, followed by a year at the Lorenzo De Medici Italian Institute of Art in Florence. He received his BA from Ithaca College and then moved on to the New York Academy of Art. His canvas works have been exhibited in the USA, Europe and Asia and are part of the Detroit Institute of Art's permanent collection.

FEATURED ARTIST: SHAZIA IMRAN - AUSTRALIA
Shazia Imran is an Australian artist and sculptor known for her expressive mixed media pieces. She draws inspiration from her travels, exploring the infinite expressiveness of her subjects through watercolours, acrylics and mixed media. Her delicately multi-layered paintings explore the connections between landscape, memory and the subconscious through texture and the interplay of light and dark, creating an atmosphere that opens itself up to multiple meanings.
Born in Pakistan, Imran relocated to Australia over 16 years ago. Her work has been exhibited in numerous solo and group shows throughout Australia as well as New York, Florence and selected cities in Pakistan. She is the 2015 winner of the Lorenzo il Magnifico prize for mixed media at the Florence Biennale. She is a member of the National Association for the Visual Arts (Australia), the Sculptors Society (Australia) and the American Watercolour Society (USA).
Represented by Shazia Imran herself, Australia, Room 4112.
FEATURED ARTIST: MARIO GOMEZ - CHILE
Chilean artist Mario Gomez's (b. 1968) paintings beckon the viewer to recall their own childhood. Many of his images are often autobiographical, reminiscences of childhood fantasies. The juggler, ballerina and horse intermingle with simple architectural constructions that are influenced by the literature of Latin-American magic realism. The artist creates a world of fantasy, reassembling familiar images and spaces and creating a new synthesis. The unique content and juxtaposition of human, natural, and material objects creates a "paper world" - a technique the artist uses to simulate crumpled paper.
Gomez attended the School of Art at Pontifical Catholic University in Santiago, and studied under several of Chile's influential painters including Gonzalo Cienfuegos. His work is in museum collections in Europe and Asia as well as in the private collections of former Chilean President Michelle Bachelet and renowned author Isabel Allende.
Represented by Mishin Fine Arts, USA, Room 4007.
NOW AT FABRIK GALLERY
CURRENT EXHIBITION: INTIMATE EMBRACES7 July - 30 September, 2016
This highly anticipated exhibition presents fluid and abstract renderings of full-figured women as seen through the eyes of one of China’s leading “post-contemporary” abstract artists. Pang Yongjie draws on mid-eighth century ideals of beauty to bring the viewer a light and effortless depiction of corpulent women in flowing robes and ruby lips whose quietude reflects a deeper understanding of the self. The artist’s works have been exhibited across Asia, the USA, and Europe.
