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.
An artistic workshop should always be prepared carefully. The content will adapt according to the crowd, the ages, the level of understanding of each member and of course the one who organizes it and what he wants to achieve!
An artistic workshop and a glass of Champagne please!
Learning how to sketch is certainly a long process but acquiring the basics in a short amount of time (3h) is possible with a good workshop leader. Every art workshop is different according to what someone wants to learn: watercolor, drawing, ink, acrylic, pencils, crayons… In the case of Le French May celebration at Harbour City with Ruinart, the idea was to provide some knowledge about the glittery sketching process signed by Paris Art Ltd.
Our goal was to allow the members of the workshop to be able to design drawings such as the one above after a few hours. Some were more complex because they were added with 3d fabric.
The members were very interested and finally got very talented! Klio, our workshop leader did a great job with explaining how to use the tools, the painting, the proportions, etc. And with a glass of Champagne it’s always easier to understand! After a short amount of time everyone was ready to draw, use silver powder, original tools, fabric and else to express their originality. We framed the artistic pieces on site so all guests were able to keep their piece of art at home and exhibit them!
The result is not only about learning art it’s also to discover a new world which starts with somebody’s own world. Who do you believe you are? Could you imagine a minute that 3h of your life could lead you to a passion? How would you know this is your passion if you never experimented it before?
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.

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!

Eric from Paris Art Ltd is painting the HK skyline in a very colorful way!
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…
