Each month there are new exhibitions to check out that won’t hurt your wallet. We’ve found a few worth mentioning, so make a date and go see some of the coolest artwork out this month!

“To Live is to Love” by David Stein

A widely travelled Swiss artist based in Hong Kong, David Stein is deeply spiritual and quirky. Colour, light and emotion drive his abstract paintings and in these works he conveys his idea of “from the real world to the dream world”. He is a good practitioner of “plein air” painter who plays with natural light and shade. Color and tough brushstrokes express the intense emotions which inspire him.

When: From now until Wednesday, 14 February; Tuesday to Saturday, 1pm to 8pm
Where: Art Supermarket 1/F Asiarich Court, 5 Staunton Street, Soho, Hong Kong
How much: Free!
