The very first Hong Kong solo exhibition of Dutch artist Merijn Kavelaars, titled Bursting Bold, will showcase a body of fundamental multi-media works by Kavelaars, involving his most recent paper works and prints, and monumental canvas pieces. Kavelaars employs vigorously spontaneous, rebellious style of painting inspired by the CoBrA Group Movement, and takes aspect of the everyday experience and how we interact with the environment and transform them into the platforms of making art.
In celebration of “Dutch Days in Hong Kong” organised by the Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and Asia Week Hong Kong, and to fully demonstrate the artist’s earnest and energetic approach to site-specific art making, the exhibition will also be accompanied by a large-scale mural work, aiming to provide the elements of interaction, entertainment and festivities.
Supported by the charitable organisation Save the Children, a workshop and artist talk is scheduled in the gallery on April 28th, 2018, with all profits contributed towards the support of children in developing countries.
