Running for over three years now, the annual Hong Kong International Art Fair is really worth visiting.
I can’t say that I understand much about art, but I previously attended the Hong Kong International Art Fair 2009 and found it to be fun and thought provoking. This year was as nice with a huge hall of arts from all over the world with what seemed like a focus on the region. Some of the mainland artists and galleries attracted a lot of attention with some of their exhibits.
Here’s an example of one that I really liked. It took me a while to understand how this was done as the narrator commented that it was Photoshop free.
Liu Bolin, the artist and person on the front had his clothes match the background with the cop and the rest painted as white, resulting in a really powerful photo which I’ll let you figure out for yourself what that means to you.
So, you’re welcome to take a quick tour of some of the displays. There are many many more posted in my HK Art 2010 gallery.
Some of the artists seemed to have an interesting sense of humor. I wonder who would buy those.
I enjoyed watching the audiences and how they reacted to some of the art work.
To wrap up, a self-portrait on the special mirror…
