Art Basel has hit Hong Kong, and we were there to round up the must-see pieces at this year’s event.
Works by Highsnobiety favorites such as KAWS, Takashi Murakami, Mr., Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, and George Condo were all on show, and as expected, their pieces were some of the highlights.
Among the other works on display were Tokyo-based street artist TENGAone’s classic cartoons painted on pieces of cardboard, Nina Chanel Abney‘s signature colorful paintings addressing issues of gender and race, and Heji Shin’s Kanye West photographs examining our divisive relationship with the rapper and entrepreneur.
In terms of large-scale pieces, Moroccan-French visual artist Latifa Echakhch’s artfully fanned cloud-covered sheet took over the center of the fair, while the late Duane Hanson’s hyper-realistic tourist sculpture hung out in the corner of the fair.
Art Basel Hong Kong opened today and runs until Sunday, March 31. Head here for more information.
