“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.”
Perfectly quoted by Edgar Degas, a highly celebrated French Artist of the 19th century. And it makes so much sense. For an artist their artwork is a product of their creativity and perception, however, each spectator is free to perceive it as per their imagination. Art insists on us to think beyond the ordinary. It has the ability to evoke within us emotions that otherwise are in hiding.
The 15th Edition of one of Hong Kong’s renowned art exhibitions is here. This year’s Fall Edition of the Asia Contemporary Art Show is all set to indulge you with brilliantly thought-provoking works of artists from around the world.

So don’t think twice before walking into a room with expectations of being captivated by true talent and sheer creativity.
