Illustration comes in millions of styles—digital, ink, pencil colour… you name it, we have it. One same object, a thousand interpretations—a person may be drawn as comically cute, classically beautiful, or even become a mythical creature with long-horns and one-eye. The styles are limitless just as our imaginations. With art, there may be trends, or likes and dislikes, but there is never a “right” or a “wrong.”
Now in its fourth edition, IllusfairHK is here to bring you a different experience. What will happen when illustration meets multimedia if we give all artists one same theme? Art Venture Association gathered 100-plus illustration units and more than 15 local artists to form a “normally abnormal” parallel space across two locations within K11 Art Mall.
The event, which will span over 1.5 months, will feature an illustration-focused market on one side and a creative multimedia exhibition on the other. With the two parts of the events running hand in hand, IllusfairHK is here to shock your existing conception of what illustration and visual art is or could be. Workshops include digital tote bag printing, screen printing, embroidery, and mahjong tile decoration.
