Hong Kong Art Basel 2015

Been dreading doing this post because there is a lot to.

The actually experience was pretty taxing because the goal was to finish within a day  but I enjoyed myself. The cafe was my safe space.

Plus I really didn’t take down notes because 1. there was no time 2. im a nincompoop and thought only of the final destination : cafe.

CAUSE MY FAMILY IS CRAY (for art hehe) — we went to Gagosian Gallery pre Art Fair.

Actually it was only practical to go because it was near where we stayed — somewhere in Central.

I used to want to do art with REALLY THICK paint like this then I got frustrated cause I used acrylic which often times dries flat.

I saw this in a book / poster somewhere and was exhilarated to be able to see it in the flesh.

Now here comes there storm

Some are super duper famous and need not to be labeled — others either I did not take note off / can’t match the notes to the works.

9AM – 5PM art overload summarized :
