About the artists:
David Gerstein, one of the most innovative and well-known Israeli artists in the world today, is best known for his Pop-Art pieces which combine bold colors with striking multi-layered metal cutout pieces. Gerstein binds these elements to create stunning wall sculptures that catch the eye and convey hypnagogic yet cinematic stories. His choice of subject matters is very in-depth and diverse, within which the phenomenon birds and flowers series, created in recent years, will be presented to you in this exhibition. We could find Gerstein’s art works are displayed in outdoor settings in an array of countries, including Germany, Korea, and Taiwan. One of his highly acclaimed public arts, Momentum, an 18-meter-high painted steel outdoor sculpture that symbolizes the artist’s strong, persistent and optimistic attitude, can be found in Singapore’s central business district.
Lam Tian Xing’s artworks seamlessly integrate both Eastern and Western aesthetics by combining bold favorite subjects, according to Lam. The Lotus series, featuring 10 ink paintings will be presented in this exhibition. Lam began his practice in Western and Chinese paintings in 1978 under the guidance of masters Wu Guoguang, Liu Guang, Chen Ting, Lin Mu and many more. He has participated in more than one hundred exhibitions worldwide, including but not limited to Centennial Exhibition of Chinese Paintings in Beijing, China National Art Exhibition, Art Exhibition Commemorating the 30th Anniversary of Reform and Opening and Contemporary Hong Kong Art Biennial Exhibition. Lam’s paintings, Morning Songs and Sideview in Victoria Harbour have accompanied the space shuttles of the Shenzhou VI and Shenzhou VII in 2005 and 2008 respectively, witnessing these important national milestones for Hong Kong art.colors and rhythmic brushwork with abstract yet concrete imagery.
In 1997, the American Freeman Foundation awarded Hui Yan Ki a scholarship to encourage his art practice in the United States. He received the Master of Art from the Fujian Normal University School of Art in 2009. Under the tutelage of some famous artists since his youth, Hui’s manner of painting expression is deeply influenced by Classicalism and Realism. His representational style is often described as “fluid, foggy and misty”, which allows room for romantic and spontaneous imagination for audience. Through the Lotus collection in this exhibition, Hui portrays a usual ethereal grace that is consistent in his other works. This particular stylish approach harmonizes with Lam Tian Xing’s, adding to the exhibition a serene touch in his tranquil stillness. Hui's works were exhibited in numerous places, such as Hong Kong, Beijing and Tokyo and have been included in the collections of many art galleries, museums and private collectors.
