Fourth and fifth exhibitions of "Art >< Creativity" exhibition series in Greater Bay Area to be held in Foshan (with photos)

     Co-organised by the Art Promotion Office under the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) and the Hong Kong Designers Association, the fourth and fifth exhibitions, "Oh><Yes" and "The Flow of Life", in the "Art><Creativity" exhibition series in the Greater Bay Area will be staged today and will run until November 28 at He Art Museum in Foshan. Four Hong Kong artists and designers drew inspiration from animations and films to create groups of artworks reflecting their insights on life.
     In the fourth exhibition, "Oh><Yes", artist Lam Yau-sum and designer Hong Ko, inspired by favourite animations from their childhood, reinterpret the classic characters that are optimistic, courageous and resilient through their artworks. In revisiting the good old days, they hope to revive that youthful energy and strike a chord in the hearts of their audience. Artist Lam Yau-sum collected old electronic parts, reassembled and coloured them to create unique landscapes and childhood memories for all to share. Designer Hong Ko recreated favourite cartoon characters from his childhood using emojis popular nowadays. He also co-created with young artist Zhu Yuchen the cartoon painting series "The Wheel of the Stories".
    The fifth exhibition, "The Flow of Life", features 12 groups of calligraphy, typeface design and installation works by artist Chui Pui-chee and designer Benny Luk that are responses to the three spiritual levels of martial arts practitioners depicted in the Hong Kong film "Grandmaster", namely "Know Oneself", "Know Heaven and Earth", and "Know All Living Creatures". The exhibition is divided into three parts in which Chui and Luk demonstrate, through their artworks, how to learn about their true selves, appreciate how the world works from different perspectives, and understand the ups and downs in people's lives.
     The "Art><Creativity" exhibition series in the Greater Bay Area is presented by the LCSD, co-organised by the Art Promotion Office and the Hong Kong Designers Association, with Shenzhen Fringe Art Centre as the project partner. The series, featuring six exhibitions, runs in four cities in the Greater Bay Area, namely Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Foshan and Dongguan, and shows the works of 12 Hong Kong artists and designers, as well as a Shenzhen media artist.
