From 19 August to 18 September, Woaw Gallery presents “Familia,” a group exhibition curated by Pablo Villazán. Featuring European, American, and Asian artists, the exhibition showcases works by Edgar Plans, Adriana Oliver, Stickymonger, Sun-Kyo Park, Ana Barriga, Grip Face, Patty Spyrakos, Willem Hoeffnagel, and Evgen Čopi Gorišek.
The most important thing in Pablo Villazán’s career is the relationship with his artists whom he calls “Familia.” Family is synonymous with unconditional love and loyalty, an entity that fights, dreams, and works for the good of all its members. In his debut as curator for the Woaw Gallery in Hong Kong, Pablo Villazán wants to be accompanied by his family with whom he grows every day as a gallerist and as a person. This group of artists shares much more than a professional relationship. They all have an original style, which makes them unique, but they also have a common denominator—a benchmark of the contemporary art scene that makes their characters recognizable by everyone else.
In this exhibition, viewers will see the fantastic heroes of Edgar Plans, the cinematographic portraits of Adriana Oliver, the sublime pictorial elegance of the work of Sun-Kyo Park, the delicate porcelain of the portraits of Ana Barriga, the expressionism in the faces of the characters of Evgen Čopi Gorišek, the subtle femininity and beauty of the character of Stickymonger, the poetic and colourful fantasy of the portraits of Grip Face, the expressive eyes in the character of Willem Hoeffnagel and the grotesque beauty of the busts of Patty Spyrakos.
