Affordable Art Fair Hong Kong is a Pop Art Dream

Affordable Art Fair Hong Kong is a Pop Art Dream

This May marked the sixth edition of the Affordable Art Fair Hong Kong, with 115 local and international galleries showcased. Artists from all over were exhibited, with a large number showcasing some incredible pop art pieces.

The fair took place at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre and presented a mix of established and emerging artists. This year’s fair also featured the Young Talent Hong Kong exhibition and live performances. Bold and bright was the theme of choice, with a number of famed brand logos and cartoon characters making an appearance.

A key piece for all Supreme- and Simpsons-heads was a painting featuring Homer Simpson and Sideshow Bob wearing box logo tees. Also among the works were references to Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans and Roy Lichtenstein’s comic-book stylings, as well as Mickey Mouse, Pikachu, and Astro Boy.

With prices starting at approximately $127, attendees had a great opportunity to take home a one-of-a-kind piece. Check out a selection of the artworks exhibited in the gallery above and be sure to let us know which one you’d have copped in the comments below.
