João Vasco Paiva at Edouard Malingue Gallery
The contemporary Portugese artist based in Hong Kong presents his work at a solo exhibition in Central
Edouard Malinge Gallery will play host to the much-anticipated solo exhibition from contemporary Portugese artist João Vasco Paiva, titled Near and Elsewhere. Paiva, who has been based in Hong Kong since 2006, uses his background in painting and media to create work through multiple mediums.
For his solo exhibition this time around, Paiva will be exploring the unintentional aesthetic of the city’s public collective from boarded-up shops to a collage of ads and blank billboards above the city’s skyline. His exhibition will present a series of urban sculptures inspired by shapes and objects seen out in about in this celebrated city.
