Asia Contemporary Art Show hits again this season at JW Marriott Hotel, showcasing 72 art galleries with a total of 300 artists’ works for sale. Originals, limited editions, sculptural pieces and photography pieces are included in the grand total of 2000 art pieces, ready for purchase from the 4th to the 6th for the general public. Consuming a total of 4 floors in the hotel; expect a wide range of quality works to be seen.
Within the 300 artists, the show has picked out some individuals from around the world as highlights. This includes Vietnam’s Bui Thanh Tam, China’s Yu Nancheng, Hong Kong’s Daniel Dela Cruz, Pauline Gagnon, Dang Xuan Hoa, Martha Zuik, Stephanie and Dang Xuan Hoa, Japan’s Vassallo and Moscow’s Anastasia Rurikov-Simes.
Our personal favorite would be Bui Thanh Tam and Pauline Gagnon who both are painters; with the prior specialized in oil and the latter in portraiture. Bui Thanh Tam’s work discusses about the materialized modern society, with a major focus on monetary values and power instead of the essence of happiness in life. Colorful, bold and elaborate; his works showcases metropolitan life, thus reflecting upon the social culture and value we have now which he views as especially corrupting to the traditional cultures of Vietnam. See him in room 2711 when you visit his exhibition hosted by Art House Vietnam.
Initially from Quebec, Canada; Pauling Gagnon is globally recognized for his huge monumental portraitures. Combining eastern ideas with calligraphy styles; her works has been travelling around the world ever since 1985. This time, her works will be showcased in room 2912 under Asian Art de Vivre.
