If you haven't already been, there's still time, the HK Art fair opened this week and the last day is Sunday. I've been to many art fairs around the world and I can honestly say the HK one i really not bad at all. A very mature show of international standard. Really helps to put HK on the art world map.
I strongly recommend you go take a look around, it's not often we get such an amazing bunch of art to look at from over 100 galleries around the world. It's at the new Convention centre in Wanchai, get over there while you still have a chance.
Here's a few shots to give you and idea.
lots of Warhol around...
sculpture made from TV's
the star of the show, a Francis Bacon worth millions
Thomas Ruff and a Damien Hirst in the background
this sculpture was made from car tires
lots of mainland Chinese art at the fair
this is Mel Ramos
nice traditional meets futuristic Japanese prints
constantly changing plasma screens
chairman mao was everywhere, am so bored of his image!
this is a sculpture of Li Wei who actually came to the opening looking like this, covered in mirrors. He then ripped it all off as a performance.
a little known artist called Simon Birch! sold very well!
this was a stunning constantly changing sunset on a weird LCD screen set up.
nice big messy painting
porcelain doggy, cute and expensive.
says it all
fabric and mirrors
would have loved to buy this Basquiat, super expensive of course.
sequined lady, mmm, nice.

This is Cang Xin, really amazing artist. He has a show on at my gallery, 10 Chancery Lane, Central.
This is one of his photos. I got one for myself! Swapped him for one of my paintings.
This is the after fair dinner which was hosted by Louis Vuitton at my exhibition space in Chai Wan. Was a lovely dinner and people really seemed to like the paintings. Sold all the work!
