Miniature art has a long history spanning a vast geographic area, from 13th century court paintings in Persia, to 15th century monastic manuscripts in France, to pocket portraits in the Elizabethan era. This September, Hong Kong artists will be reviving the art form with a more contemporary perspective.
‘Closer‘ is Hong Kong’s first miniature art exhibition. Each artist is restricted to a canvas measuring only 2” x 3” or 4” x 4”.
The show will run from the 12th to 19th of September at PubArt Gallery, 7b Chancery Lane, Central. There will be an opening reception on Friday, 12th September from 5-8:30pm. See their Facebook page here.
It will feature a series of original works from 10 different local artists – Silvia Chan, Beverly Fung Wing Yan, Mark Goss, Lori Ho, Hannah Hodson, Kako Peco, Stanley Shum, Rainbow Tse, Amelia Wong and ZeZe.
