This August, Over The Influence gallery in central presents 15 works by Hong Kong-based artist Catherine Grossrieder in an exhibition titled Fast Taste
While the world knows Hong Kong as a finance capital full of luxury restaurants and cocktail bars, we here at Honeycombers know that there is actually a burgeoning art scene that exists throughout the region. A number of art galleries in Hong Kong work hard to showcase exhibitions by local artists, the latest being Fast Taste, a solo exhibition of works by Catherine Grossrieder at Over The Influence in Central.
Over The Influence presents Fast Taste
You may have seen artist Catherine Grossrieder’s street art while you wander the streets and alleys of Sheung Wan. Painting under the moniker of Cath Love, Grossrieder has adorned many walls with her signature character Jelliboo in her unique cartoon-like style.
From 10-31 August, 2017, Over The Influence gallery on Hollywood Road, Central, will hold an exhibition of the artist’s works on canvas titled Fast Taste.
Support local artists: Catherine Grossrieder solo exhibition
The show presents a new collection of artworks that are inspired by fast food culture and mash up her 80s Hip Hop style with her witty sense of humour.
With 15 new canvas works, the exhibition reflects on the time that Grossrieder spent living in Hackney, London and the fast food takeaway joints that surround the neighbourhood. Bright colours and her cartoon-like, graffiti style paint fun images of fried chicken, pizza and burgers while delving into the stigma around fast food.
Born in Thailand and raised in Hong Kong, Grossrieder has been influenced by a number of Asian artists and Japanese cartoons. She has previously worked with a number of clients, such as Selfridges, Nike, H&M, Jimmy Choo, Lane Crawford and Kangol.
Fast Taste, Over The Influence, 1/F, 159 Hollywood Road, Central, Hong Kong. Until 27 September, 2017
