Zhuang Hong Yi, "Radiance" at HOFA Gallery

0-3.jpeg

One of the most significant contemporary artists in the world today, Zhuang Hong Yi, is bringing his exciting ‘Radiance’ exhibition to London this month.  

Zhuang’s latest exhibition will be presented in a thrilling format, split across two resplendent venues belonging to HOFA Gallery. The first part will take place from 19th to 25th March in their St James’s gallery, then moves seamlessly to the highly anticipated new HOFA Gallery opening on 58 Maddox Street (corner with New Bond Street) from 26th March until the 8th April.

As the UK’s top selling Asian artist, with his works appreciating every year 20% to 40%, Zhuang Hong Yi has been enlightening the art industry for years. He has exhibited at all the renowned global art fairs - including Scope in NYC, Tefaf, and Art Basel - with exhibitions and shows proving a sell out before opening night

His soon to be unaffordable works are heavily inspired by Chinese materials and Dutch culture and his Radiance exhibition epitomises these influences. The unique colour changing ability of his flowerbeds from different focal points has led Zhuang to patent his highly skilled technique, something only a handful of artists in the world have ever achieved.

Zhuang’s flair for creativity and desire to bring the world of art something refreshingly new is evident in this breath-taking exhibition of works. Eastern and Western cultures collide, as Zhuang infuses his artwork with the essences of each.

His originality is one of his greatest strengths, radiating beauty through materials that others would never even think to use. His rice paper flower manipulations show his determination to encompass his Chinese heritage with his Dutch lifestyle and creates a truly exceptional collection of art.

 

Art Advisory Consultant and Founder of The House of Fine Art Gallery Simonida Pavicevic, said, “HOFA Gallery has been proud to exclusively represented Zhuang Hong Yi for over five years in London and the UK.”

 

She added, “We are very excited about the opening of our Mayfair gallery on the 26th of March, and Zhuang was the obvious choice for our inaugural exhibition, as he represents the essence of HOFA.”

DesignCollector Network (curator, Arseny Vesnin) presents an innovative exhibition exploring the intersections digital and physical forms (“phygital”) in art as part of the annual event Digital Decade, featuring 50 emerging artists working in the field of digital art. This year’s theme of “Cyberia” encourages artists to reflect on the concept of the newborn digital-native that is changing our common value systems.

Winners of the Ello x Digital Decade Open Contest 2017

The Digital Decade collaboration and exhibition now in its fourth year, has run successfully each year since 2013. Curated by DCN and partners, the first round of Digital Decade consists of online Open Calls where selected artists are featured in the exhibition in London.
For 2017, the 5th Edition of “Digital Decade”, DCN teamed up with the leading creative platforms Ello Network and Curioos to bring 35 digital artists together engaged in creating print artworks to take a part in a London exhibition. One third of these artists made a cut from a huge shortlist selected by the prominent Jury during “Ello x Digital Decade” Open Call. Another addition to upcoming event is a new challenge made together with Sedition Art Platform that will feature the work of selected video artists. Also a number of interactive, phygital and VR artists to join the exhibition to create an immersive atmosphere.

The concept of Cyberia is “the unknown territories: shaped by the digital ethnos”. This, “ethnos” refers to the generation of digital people that are changing our world, and continuing to influence our culture. As our world becomes increasingly digital, it ultimately transforms to become a ‘Cyberia’.

The exhibition takes place over three days in August, at Ugly Duck on Tanner st in London. For this new creative season Ugly Duck has chosen the theme Real/Virtual and “Digital Decade 5: Cyberia” was happy to won their venue grant earlier this year. Exhibition invites visitors and artists into a visual dialogue on geopolitical, environmental, social and even interstellar changes taking place in our world with digital art and technology. Event will feature VR, Print, Phygital and Interactive installations as well as Creative Talks from industry leaders.

The Instagram Show by Avant Arte at Unit London

As online art sales boom, innovative London gallery UNIT joins forces with leading online art platform Avant.Arte to stage an exhibition of art popularised on Instagram 

As Hiscox reports, 48% of art buyers use Instagram, and by 2017, the majority of art purchases will be carried out online. As online art sales boom, it might be a perfect time for an Instagram art show. This is why an innovative London gallery Unit London will join forces with a leading online art platform Avant Arte to mount an exhibition of art publicized via Instagram. This will be a rare occasion for Avant Arte’s half million of followers to see the art they discovered online featured on walls and floors of the gallery space. Among participating artists are Avant Arte’s Jason SeifLionel Smit, and Brian Willmont and Unit London’s Ryan HewettIvan Alifan and Massimo Agostinelli.

The Avant Arte Platform

Launched in 2014 by two Dutch entrepreneurs, Curtis Penning and Christian Luiten, Avant Arte aims to make all art accessible to anyone in the world, connect people with art and the artists they love, but also empower artists and creatives to share their dreams with the world. The platform was listed in 2016 on Huffington Post as one of the most influential art Instagram accounts. Art lovers can swipe through art, discover what they love and make a direct contact with an artist, gallery or museum.

 

The Unit London

Founded in 2013 by two British artists and entrepreneurs, Joe Kennedy and Jonny Burt, Unit London is a city’s leading independent, artist-led gallery situated in Soho. Frustrated by the exclusivity of the commercial art sector and with a desire to break down these barriers of elitism and to include people in the contemporary art world, they founded a gallery that is based on the idea of inclusivity. Over the course of three years, Unit London has gone from charity shop pop-up to thriving commercial gallery with and international roster of artists and a fast-growing following of both new and established collectors. With over 100,000 followers worldwide across all social media channels and 80,000 on Instagram specifically, their openness online is matched by the welcoming and inclusive atmosphere of their expansive venue.

Nonspaces

A group exhibition entitled “Nonspaces” that highlights exemplification of nature and modernization of space by new media is on view at Akbank Sanat, Istanbul and will run through March 4, 2017.

Artists: Can Büyükberber, Felix Luque, Field, Iñigo Bilbao, İdil İlkin, LAb[au], LIA, Onformative, OUCHHH, Paul Myoda, Ryoichi Kurokawa, Semiconductor, Sougwen Chung, Youki Hirakawa 

The artworks on display intend to transform the notion of space or generate hyper-real spaces for our acknowledgment. The compositions let the observers comprehend and live through space in a non-physical, non-social, non-traditional manner as a non-space. The representations formed by novel media tend to be more suitable in our ultra-modern way of life, emphasizing the novel conducts that we associate with our world.
