On the heels of Art Basel Hong Kong, comes a large-scale show of street art titled “Work In Progress“.
The three-week exhibition will take place in mid-June and will feature international artists including Beastman, Cyrcle (David Emanuel Torres and David Morgen Leavitt,) Meggs, RONE, VHILS, Victor Ash, Martin Mazorra and Mike Houston.
The show, which is being staged by Swire Properties, and curated by Hong Kong’s Above Second Gallery, will also include workshops and other events.
The exhibition is located in TaiKoo Place and will integrate building exteriors and interiors, in addition to canvases.
For a quick rundown of the artists, Beastman paints characters made up of elaborate plumes of colors. RONE integrates women’s portraits into his work. Victor Ash and VHILS both create large-scale, building-sized portraits. The most recent show by CYRCLE featured interactive, remixable art. MEGGS, has action and stylized movement in his work, and has been in H.K. before for shows at Above Second Gallery. The two artists from Brooklyn’s Cannonball Press (Mike Houston and Martin Mazorra,) are well established print-making specialists.
The artists come from around the world including the U.S., Australia, Portugal, France, England, and Denmark. The show will also incorporate Hong Kong-based street artists such as Xeme, Mark Goss, 4Get, Pantone C, and Parent’s Parents.
