Wow, this looks like a great show. A mixture of erotica, fantasy, and old fashioned saliciousness from Chinese painter Chen Fei is now on display at Galerie Perrotin in Hong Kong. The new exhibition is comprised of seven paintings mainly executed in 2013, and is a record of Chen’s major transition in life, including his first taste of independent adult living in 30 years.

Not that we want to deter you from looking at these images, but no picture will do this exhibition justice. I can go on and on about how intriguing the work is, how the Chapman brothers have perhaps made the biggest noise during Basel week in Hong Kong, but even that would not give enough credit to how incredible the diorama pieces of The Sum of All Evil really are.

Michael Wolf's photographic study of Hong Kong, "The Architecture of Density," features photos of the city's buildings photographed without the horizon. "...By using this stylistic solution by eliminating the sky and horizon you give the feeling of unlimited size, because you have no idea how big the building is. It could be 100 stories or 200 stories, it could be a mile long. This illusion of unlimited size really conveys what we experience in megacities."

Using rock climbing equipment and dangling on the side of a towering building, Shida and Two One painted the following piece for Neon Golden in Hong Kong. It is an impressive accomplishment considering with a lift you can move back to get perspective on what you’re painting and also the fact that you are held up by some ropes! Not many would be able stomach painting under the conditions.
