For the big launch event of Campfire, a fantastic coworking space, we explored original ideas linked to food and illustrations. The main big question was : how to create an illustration made of 100% food? Challenge was accepted! After a research process and brainstorming sessions we came out with the idea of plates illustrations. Not only would it be possible to illustrate with food but also could we display the hashtag of client on the plate so everyone could see the name of client and tag him on Instagram. Finally all invited enjoyed this creative experience happening live! The performance was organized throughout a workshop where guests could try to illustrate themselves and become an artist of a day. Sometimes they also inspired us with uncommon ideas and we end up going much further than what we imagined in the first place. Art in motion, creativity never stops!
The idea of painting using lipstick, eyeshadow & nail polish came with Clé de Peau Beauté who kindly trusted our unlimited creative mind. After brainstorming on creative solutions, we realized make up would be great for organizing an original event entertainment. Therefore, we launched the artistic event process and came up with fashion sketches. The main idea was to sketch guests in 10mn maximum using watercolor and the make up collection of the brand for a bespoke experience. This was a fantastic opportunity to be part of the Bal Masqué 2015 collection in which super talented artist Joji Kojima got involved in. The Japanese art combined with delicate Venetian Italian sensation has been a wonderful delight and it gave us even more inspiration for the new projects to come. Guests who would get into the Hong Kong boutiques chose their favorite mask and make up and our illustrators team would draw accordingly either live or based on a picture taken at the boutique. This led to magnificents moments.

The idea of artistic event based on glass painting came as we discussed in the office with HK Sotheby’s International Realty about an original event entertainment. For the Art & Home series of five networking events throughout the year to thank their valued clients for their trust and loyalty, we were searching for creative ideas to organize an artistic event. Looking around at the glass walls of the office we thought: “why not using them?”. That’s how we decided to start searching for artistic solutions. ‘Paint Me on Glass’ concept was born.
Glass painting artistic event
During a very special artistic evening, the artist improvised on-site portraits of the guests while he also painted bodies and landscapes in the other rooms. We also invited our guests to add little touches of personal creativity so everyone could participate! Everything was made on glass: on the windows of the floor, and these windows would remain in that state during many days being kept as artistic temporary murals so it created a long-term strategy. It’s also possible to paint on smaller and individual pieces of glass to be able to take them home as a precious gift, or even to sell them at auctions to the benefit of a Charity. That’s what we did for other projects.
So during this joyful artistic event, people were meeting and cheering up, enjoying the concept and sharing it on the social networks channels. With the #hashtag on top of the portraits everyone could share the content on line and it led to passionate discussions. While the artist was painting guests portraits, leaving attendees speechless with the flawless poetry behind the strokes of the artist brush. This was entertaining and impressing everyone as this concept was realized for the first time in Hong Kong: ‘You will never guess what I saw today!’
The intervention of the artist not only brought warmth and magic to the event, but it pleased the guests and honored them, by making them become a model for the day! Bespoke experiences are always a must.
Creative thinking is at the core of d school! A hub for innovators at Stanford, human values are also key of their collaborative approach. Therefore, it was more than a great pleasure organizing artistic activities for this prestigious programme. We came up with bespoke solutions and original artistic event, renewing concepts of calligraphy and drawing on bookmarks, emphasizing the participatory approach. Everyone enjoyed these creative experiences which matched with the d school transformative learning experiences.
In a time when there is hunger for innovation everywhere, d school describes itself as a methodology for innovation that combines creative and analytical approaches, and requires collaboration across disciplines. This process—which has been called design thinking—draws on methods from engineering and design, and combines them with ideas from the arts, tools from the social sciences, and insights from the business world. At Paris Art Ltd, we simply like this prospective and we really enjoyed working on these event entertainment solutions!
For an exquisite new collection launch we had the pleasure to collaborate with the New York brand Alice and Olivia for artistic events in Hong Kong. With 2 major stores at IFC and Harbour City the brand brings a colorful way of life and a very positive atmosphere that many celebrities are addicted to (Angelababy, Angelina Jolie, Eva Longoria…). Inspired of dresses from the collection we thought of a bespoke solution and designed floral illustrations in the same spirit, using flowers and particularly rose petals. This was created for boutique events.
