Comments Off on HOW YOU CAN BUY SHARES IN A BANKSY art, Culture, lifestyle, my words, news, review, sara darling

There are art lovers, and art investors, but not many people can do both. However, thanks to the owner of the HOFA Gallery in Mayfair, investors can buy shares in selected artwork from the “XXI” collection, and part-own a slice of history.

This revolutionary scheme is the first of its kind in the UK, and is offering some very intriguing pieces of art. So if you have a spare $500, why not get in touch with A R T C E L S at HOFA.

What’s more refreshing on a long hot summer evening, than a refreshing G&T?

Or looking at art, whilst supping a gin cocktail…? 

I enjoyed both! And you can too, if you hurry on down to the CANVAS #StirCreativity pop up in Shoreditch.

The Zhuang Hong Yi exhibition will make you glow

Comments Off on The Zhuang Hong Yi exhibition will make you glow art, lifestyle, my words, review, sara darling

ABSTRACT TULIPS AT THE ZHUANG HONG YI SHOW

Holland based artist, Zhuang Hong Yi merges his Chinese heritage with Western Impressionism to create larger than life sculptural art which is very easy for the viewer to get lost in, in his latest London exhibition at the HOFA Gallery.

His current show is influenced by the traditional Chinese symbol of a flower, but rather than using the typical rose lotus, this collection is made up of teeny hand made abstract tulips, alongside lashings of thickly smeared paint, which is the perfect combination of his background and Western influence, which he uses to create contemporary, relevant pop art.

Entitled ‘Radiance’, the huge three dimensional pieces make you want to reach out and touch them, whilst the fading colour palettes add metamorphosis and depth.

Depending on the angle and time of day, each piece of art brings a new dimension and evolution, and as your eyes are drawn into the images, it morphs into something different yet again. 

With smaller pieces, and some of significant head sculptures also on display, this is an exhibition you simply cannot miss. 

Catch the show at the new HOFA Gallery Mayfair, 58 Maddox Street (corner with New Bond Street) from 26th March until the 8th April.

VARIETY IS THE SPICE AT ART WEEK ROTTERDAM

I love art. I love exhibitions, so when I jetted off to one of my favourite cities, Rotterdam it was extremely fortuitous that it was Rotterdam Art Week…OK so that bit was planned, but I had a blast and met some great new friends when I was there.
