Hong Kong Tatler - - Concierge -

MAY 11 TO JUNE 17 There is a de­lib­er­ate am­bi­gu­ity to Dutch artist Jan Worst’s paint­ings that he has sus­tained through­out his oeu­vre. The first Hong Kong ex­hi­bi­tion of the pain­ter, who pro­duces four large-scale pieces a year, gath­ers a se­lec­tion of works from the past two decades ex­em­pli­fy­ing Worst’s ded­i­ca­tion to a se­rial de­pic­tion of sub­ject mat­ter, deft painterly skill and highly charged and provoca­tive im­agery. ben­brown­fin­ MAY 6 TO MAY 14 This solo ex­hi­bi­tion ex­plores “god­fa­ther of street art” Ron English’s bill­boards from the early years of the New York street-art move­ment. It also looks at the world of Po­pa­ganda—english’s sig­na­ture mash-up of high and low cul­tural touch­stones, from su­per­hero mythol­ogy to totems of art his­tory—with a few sur­prises. A cu­rated se­lec­tion of well-known and rarely seen works from the late di­as­pora artist. On dis­play are Ting’s im­me­di­ately recog­nis­able and beau­ti­fully vi­brant oil paint­ings and wa­ter­colours, por­tray­ing some of his most beloved artis­tic sub­jects: women, flow­ers and an­i­mals. al­
