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!

Cha Ling and Paris Art Ltd work together to provide a unique bespoke artistic experience to the guests. Cha Ling is a somptuous cosmetic brand (LVMH group) with a wonderful story created around natural elements such as the famous Chinese Pu’er tea.
Imagine an unknown land, on the very edge of the very edge of Yunnan province, the green lung of China and one of the world’s largest sources of tea.
Imagine a forest thousands of years old, a perfect ecosystem housing the original, treasured Pu’er tea.
Imagine the dream of a German biologist, supported by his Chinese wife, to protect this unique ecological heritage.
Welcome to the artistic world of Cha Ling by Paris Art Ltd
We collaborate with Cha Ling through various events at their different stores in Hong Kong. The main idea is to customize and personalize a perfume bottle so guests can keep their own signature fragrance.
Customization is made by our artists at the stores or on order according to the guest requirements. We have come with different ideas of designs and sometimes the clients themselves have wonderful ideas which nourish our inspiration. They can see us working live when we are at the store: all the time it’s a new story that begins with discussions and thought sharing. All of them enjoy the artistic experience and add their personal touch!
With our multicultural team it’s the bridge between Hong Kong and the rest of the world that we want to build, this in order to elevate the artistic mind to a universal understanding. There is always a special connection between the artistic team and the guests. You can see below other designs signed by Paris Art Ltd.
Our sincere thank you to Cha Ling team in Hong Kong and Paris, to LVMH research centre and of course to our delightful artists: Lucie, Klio and Carrie. Paris Art Ltd would never exist without their talent.
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!
