For the HK Sothebys International Realty ‘Event Series 3/5 – Draw me I’m Colorful’ we decided to put colors in life for an original event entertainment! Bringing together with us fashion designers, creativity and technology, we created a total bespoke experience. Guests were able to fully participate in the fashion and artistic experiences which included live illustrations and photos printed on iPhone cases. The added touch was of course all the magnificent paintings from Chagall, Antonio Segui, Picasso, Bernard Buffet… as we organized the event at the very well-known Opera Gallery. Watch the video here of the corporate VIP event:
Thanks to Andy Ho, guest of honor, who kindly joined even though he was busy preparing Paris fashion week!

The colorful, fast-paced and advancing energy of Hong Kong’s past and present has been a great source of inspiration to Nicole, one of our talented artists, for this bright wall painting! “What I enjoyed particularly was to provide my own understanding of a city that I truly love. Not only did I enjoy painting my take on the town that I like to call my home, but I also enjoyed the challenges that the mural brought; Tackling a massive size and figuring out which mediums would articulate best – it helped strengthen my artistic understanding and abilities. An overall humbling learning experience.” The painting is located in the office of Meltwater Hong Kong, an agency that focuses on business strategies. Encompassing a space of 19 × 8 feet, the concept of this mural illustration is linked to vibrant Hong Kong.
Wall painting has become a great value these past years for companies, institutions and individuals. It shows particular values while sharing emotions with others. According to each projet, everyone can recognize a certain something they relate to. Besides, it creates the surprise and the will to get to know better a project, a location or the social lifestyle of a city. In the wall painting below, we can easily recognize the colorful and energetic city of Hong Kong. We can also see one of the city great features which is the mix between Eastern and Western people. Finally it is looking at the past and the present at the same time. On on hand there is a dragon boat sign on the left which illustrates the traditional city and on the other hand, there is a skyscraper in the background that reminds us the modernity of Hong Kong.
