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.
A Midsummer Night’s dream was a journey through a night of fantasy, mystery and enchantment in the biennial ball of the Oxford and Cambridge Society of Hong Kong. Paris Art Ltd brought creative solutions and bespoke experiences to this VIP event which gathered former students of the prestigious universities. With live sketching, live painting and other artistic activities the event proved to be a magical evening as Shakespearean references were prevalent through the night while many talented artists gave performances. Besides, the decoration was a must with attention paid to details and a will to transform the venue in a charming atmosphere. Memorable!

The painting was auctioned and got into the house of a renowned bank senior manager. The money went to the Society’s Scholarship Fund in support of meaningful projects around the world conducted by Oxford and Cambridge students.
It seems our live sketching got a waiting list!
For its corporate event, this renowned international bank wanted to invite its senior female managers into the world of Chanel. Therefore, we came up with different artistic solutions: the first one was to introduce fine Chanel inspired illustrations during the session as an event entertainment. All the ladies would be sketched in the Chanel way and we would add Chanel initials on the paper. The second was to teach about Chanel history and explain how Gabrielle Chanel built such a great empire while remaining a very chic and professional lady, so we organized a conference on Chanel life.
During the artistic event, the illustrations were personalized and done in 7mn each, by Lucie, the French fashion designer from our team. As for the Chanel conference, it seems the topic got a big interest from both women and men, everybody enjoyed learning more about Coco story…
