The red carpet steamed and pressed, ARTboratory’s official opening of Little Prince Art Show “One must look with the heart”. Renowned popular French novella Le Petit Prince is one of the bestselling books in the world. ARTboratory is honoured to be authorised officially to curate an art project with established artists from all over the world which is the first time ever since.
The participating artists are from the United Kingdom, United States of America, Japan, Thailand, Hong Kong and mainland China, including Dave White, Hikari Shimoda, Joey Leung, Parn Aniwat, Yoskay Yamamoto, Yosuke Ueno, Zeng Jian Yong and Zhang Tian Mu. They reimagine the classic literature with their signature and revisit the philosophy of the monumental story. The story of the Little Prince implies impressive life inspiration although the Little Prince looks appealing to children with his innocent and pure image.
It is said that Little Prince is a magical book with different comprehension across different walks of life. The art show aims at touring around the inner world of the Little Prince and revisiting Planet B612 through the eyes of the artists and their crossover art pieces.
Today is The Little Prince Day.
To top it all off, prototypes of up coming art collectables at the exhibition too!
The Art Show takes place untill 12th July on 4/F at 7 Mallory Street in
Wan Chai. New works echoed with the literature across decades will be shown in a refurbished Grade II listed historic building. Limited edition souvenirs are available on site.
