Young Post scored tickets for Katy Perry's May 2 show at the Venetian Macau. In keeping with the pop powerhouse's colourful personality, we held an art scavenger hunt on Instagram to promote all the art that is actually in Hong Kong. The winner of the competition will receive three tickets plus round-trip ferry tickets.
We received a wide range of entries, and after some intense debates among the judges, we were finally able to choose a winner. Sadly there could only be one winner, but we still want to celebrate, in no particular order, the efforts of some of the other entrants.
Our third honourable mention is @magicalmoonstone who got some great inspiration for writing from the artwork she found!
Name of Artist: Zheng Lu Name of Artwork: Nude Created in 2008 Currently in Hong Kong Parkview Suites Art Collection Clue Number 2: An artwork that is lonely Description: This is a work of art of a man, alone and isolated, his fragile body curled against a cold hard wall. His eyes are closed tightly and his feet are dangling. However his posture doesn't describe the hundreds of emotions I imagine are going through his mind. When I look at this artwork amongst the different emotions I feel, lonely stands out by far. Being lonely is feeling misery, anger and broken hearted at the same time, it's wishing for someone else to come around. To me, that's exactly what this piece reflects. @youngposthk #ypwhatisart (my other 2 entries are below)
Name of Artist: Agam Ron Name of Artwork: Gateway Created in 2002 Currently in Opera Gallery Hong Kong Clue Number 5: A work of art that is both flat and round at the same time Description:This work if art is an illusion, the second you look at it you get caught up and simply can't look away. For a piece to be both round and flat at the same time it has to be extraordinary which "gateway" definitely is. This piece is made of uncountable amount of lenticular circles going on and on. Even though the artwork is flat, because the artist created a 3D effect this really does look round. No matter who it is, anyone that sees this work, connects with it because it truly is striking. #ypwhatisart @youngposthk
Name of Artist: Katrin Fridricks Name of Artwork: Lollipop n1 Created in 2015 Currently in Opera Gallery HK. Clue Number 2: An abstract painting that is happy and joyful Description: The swirls and flows of this piece dance through this circular canvas like waves in the ocean. Part of the reason this piece brings out happiness is because of the name, "lollipop n1" and there is nothing more joyful than a lollipop ! The way this artist used her colours is magical and brings out happiness to everyone that walks by this artwork. This piece has a spirit and it's bursting with happiness and joy that puts a smile on people's faces. #ypwhatisart @youngposthk
