In May 2018, Hong Kong hosted its sixth pop-art event, boasting a total of 115 local and international galleries. The Affordable Art Fair was held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. It was one of those instances when people gathered to celebrate and support the artistic community, as well as enjoy some interesting mixed-media works, illustrations and live performances.
The pop-art event identifies the movement of the 20th century as still a relevant driving force for inspiration, especially in an age that strongly engages with capitalism, ownership and global brands. From mixes of fashion and cartoons—the Supreme and the Simpson's mash-up illustrations—to quirky logo plays like the broken Nike Swoosh, this pop-art event was definitely a gathering of great talent and relevant commentary.
