In March 2019, Kwai Fung Hin Art Gallery is delighted to present Zhang Gong’s solo exhibition “Beyond Description, Beyond Boundary”.

Known for his playful yet metaphorical imagery that finds references in cartoon characters, Zhang Gong explores the relationship between East and West, popular culture and the modern social environment and conveys his deep concerns and reflections on the rapid social transition in the world.

In conjunction with the exhibition, Kwai Fung Hin will organize a lecture “Cartoon and Fine Art: the Experience of Asian Artists” on March 25, to introduce the development of cartoon as a form of visual expression, and to explore the influence and characteristics of the artistic concept and language of Asian artists under a contemporary global culture.

Participation fee is HK$100. Due to limited seating, please R.S.V.P. at [email protected], if you are interested in joining.
