SKETCH, LON­DON

Prestige Hong Kong - - AGENDA -

If you book a ta­ble at May­fair-meets-Soho restau­rant Sketch, there’s no avoid­ing the bounty of art that per­vades the space. Con­tem­po­rary Bri­tish artist David Shrigley has show­cased his oeu­vre in The Gallery (the more ca­sual of Sketch’s two main din­ing rooms) since 2014, but this Jan­uary saw a se­ri­ous over­haul as his pre­vi­ous mono­chrome pieces made way for a glo­ri­ous frame-to-frame line-up of colour­ful new works. The mil­len­nial-pink din­ing room – con­ceived by ar­chi­tect and de­signer In­dia Mah­davi – acts as the per­fect back­drop to Shrigley’s tren­chant art. His pow­er­ful draw­ing style is sat­u­rated with satire, of­fer­ing a com­i­cal and light-hearted per­spec­tive on to­day’s oft­de­press­ing me­dia head­lines. Oh, and the food is mas­ter­minded by Chef Pierre Gag­naire, which makes it an all-round win­ner.
