Michael Kvium | Solo Exhibition "Art Me" in Hong Kong

by Michael Kvium

Date: 30 September, 2018 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Tang Contemporary Art is delighted to present the opening of Michael Kvium’s solo exhibition “Art Me”. The exhibition features a broad spectrum of Kvium’s artistic phases dating back to the 1990s and leading up to his recent body of work. Working primarily with oil painting Kvium often incorporates large-scale installations into his series of artworks. His bizarre characters are usually portrayed through distortion and ridicule.

Having deployed a range of forms of artistic expression, such as drawing, graphics, video, performance art and painting... Read more

Rossi & Rossi Hong Kong is delighted to announce Knock, Knock, a solo exhibition of works by Kesang Lamdark.

Describing his process, Lamdark says, ‘The knock knockis the drumbeat, the heartbeat – meditation…similar to the sounds of monks making a sand mandala. I’m making a light mandala, releasing with my needles light to go through’. Born in exile in Dharamsala, India, Lamdark was accepted as a refuge by Switzerland, where he was raise... Read more
