Art Basel Hong Kong was in full flow last week, but it wasn't the only place in the city you could see great art.
Hosted separately at the Hong Kong Contemporary Art Foundation, Japanese-American Tomokazu Matsuyama's "Oh Magic Night" exhibition is an exploration of hybrid identity.
Blending stylistic cues from the Kano School — a dominant painting mode in ancient Japan — with familiar western art motifs, Matsuyama's work captures the inevitable overlapping of cultures in a globalized world. Hence the Japanese samurai wearing an "I ❤ NYC" shirt.
The show features over 40 paintings and 14 sculptures, each created by Matsuyama over the past year. Find our exclusive shots above, and check it out for yourself at:
