Art Central opened on Monday with the VIP preview and then what they call the “Opening Night”.
Style by Asia was obviously there, and in this photo log you will see some of the art we saw on the night.

But as always, art is better appreciated live, then and there, so do head down to the tents on the Hong Kong harbour front.
One of the most fun things of this type of art fair is to walk around, browse the galleries and the artist they represent and to talk to them about their art and how they make it.
Therefore, and to encourage just that, we won’t reveal where you can find these works.
Get down there and figure it out for ourselves!

Art Central - here we go!
The first thing that greets you at Art Central is this work for Swarovski by Japanese artist Yuri Suzuki.
It is an interactive, sound installation where the artist explores the use of crystal as an acoustic material by creating a mechanical, interactive crystallophone. It not only sounds divine, it looks a million bucks too! Go play.

What is it made of? Go see for yourself
Do you want to shine, do you want power or do you want love? Take your pick and take a selfie!
