Quiksilver recently held an event inside a vacant store in Hong Kong’s Soho neighborhood. The combination art exhibition / fashion show drew a crowd that spilled out onto Staunton Street, the area’s main thoroughfare. The guerrilla fashion show which was staged in the center of the venue, featured model Cara G. and a set of twins!
The Quiksilver Art on Foam exhibition was brought to life by Surf Rock music from the 1960’s that provided a great soundtrack to the artwork.
The narrow storefront was filled with fifteen surfboards painted by international artists including pro-skater Andy Howell, Australian artist Peter Webb, German artist Flying Fortress, Australian musician-artist Reg Mombassa, the UK Scrawl Collectiveâ€™s Mr Jago, English artist Lucy McLauchlan, French illustrator Jean Linnhoff, and American artist Randy Noborikawa. Several local artists also contributed boards.[photopress:Quicksilver_party_Hong_Kong.jpg,full,pp_image]
The Art on Foam exhibition is currently traveling around the world.
Despite the heat, and the fact that the event was far from the nearest beach, the night was a fun event with a good vibe.
The crowd enjoyed the informal setting and stayed at the venue much later than anticipated.
