“LAX / HKG”
Los Angeles based gallery Thinkspace has teamed up with Above Second in Hong Kong to present ‘LAX / HKG’. This special group exhibition has been curated by Thinkspace to help introduce their roster to Hong Kong. Featuring two new original works each from the likes of Amy Sol, Audrey Kawasaki, Brian M. Viveros, Dabs Myla, Esao Andrews, Joao Ruas, Linnea Strid and Yosuke Ueno, the exhibition will run from November through January.
With this special exhibit Thinkspace aims to shed light on the burgeoning New Contemporary Art Movement that was birthed in Los Angeles and continues to spread out the world over, gaining momentum and winning over new devotees at an astounding rate. With roots firmly planted in illustration, pop culture imagery, comics, street art and graffiti, put quite simply the New Contemporary Art Movement is art for the people. This exciting and challenging movement is showcased in ‘LAX / HKG‘ via the works of eight artists from around the world who create within a wide array of styles.
Whether you prefer the subtle feminine lines of Audrey Kawasaki, or the bold deep coloration of Brian M. Viveros, the diversity and complexity of the works shown will surely excite your imagination. Each artist represents a unique aspect of the current contemporary art climate. Some show greater influence from anime others from street art, but all give a refreshing perspective and truly push the envelope of current trends. Come discover your new favorite artist and enjoy this special collaboration between Los Angeles’s Thinkspace and Hong Kong’s own Above Second.
Above Second is honored to be releasing Audrey Kawasaki’s first special edition print in Asia. 50 prints will be available for purchase at the opening reception ONLY November 16th from 6 – 10 PM. Come early, as we’re expecting a line up!
