Blue-green: Yin Zhaoyang New Works

If nature landscapes are your thing, this art show is definitely for you. And if you’re up for a bit of a surprise – even better! From landscapes to sculptures, immerse yourself in Yin Zhaoyang’s world of elegance and sensibility. While many of his works are inspired by nature, his choice of production methods, materials, and colours are as unconventional as they come (in the best way possible). In particular, you will find Yin Zhaoyang’s mastery in Western Abstract Expressionism through his exquisite use of bold and dynamic strokes

When: Until Saturday, 16 November, 11am to 7pm (gallery closed Sundays, Mondays and Public Holidays)
Where: 10/F, H Queen’s, 80 Queen’s Road Central, Central, Hong Kong
Contact: 2682 8289, [email protected], www.tangcontemporary.com

VIBRANT: Shozo Shimamoto x AU

You know it’s about to get wild when an artist’s creative process involves shooting paint out of a cannon. To Shozo Shimamoto, art is all about originality and liberty. At first glance, the organic forms of paint and their vibrant colours radiate with Shimamoto’s signature haphazard art philosophy. Look a little closer, however, and you’ll find traces of the Gutai art movement – Japan’s most significant avant-garde collective of the postwar era.

When: Until Sunday, 17 November, 11am to 7pm (gallery closed Mondays and Public Holidays)
Where: Whitestone Gallery, 7-8/F, H Queen’s, 80 Queen’s Road Central, Hong Kong
Contact: 2523 8001, [email protected], www.whitestone-gallery.com
How much: Free entry
