Art in Hong Kong is set to take off in the coming years and it’s a fascinating time to be living in Hong Kong. It’s so inspiring to live in the midst of all the creative energy and talent in this city.
Last week marked yet another art milestone in Hong Kong with the opening of French photographer, Gérard Rancinan‘s exhibit featuring a selection of 30 photographs from his series: Metamorphoses, Hypotheses and Wonderful World at the Opera Gallery in Central.

At last Thursday’s opening of the Rancinan in Hong Kong exhibit, art enthusiasts and collectors were given the unique opportunity to get up close and personal with the internationally-renown photographer and his startling images.

Several of Rancinan’s famous portraits are also on exhibit at the Opera Gallery. One of his portraits that especially caught my eye was his portrait of Yan Pei-Ming. I found the palette incredibly simple, yet visually compelling. I couldn’t stop looking this portrait!

Rancinan in Hong Kong will exhibit to the public at the Opera Gallery for a limited engagement from November 11 to December 1, 2011. The exhibit will round out its Asia portion of Rancinan’s world tour in Singapore and Seoul in early 2012.
