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.
Congratulations to our grand prize winner @kinz_l whose insight and well-written explanations won her three tickets to see Katy Perry live in concert!
1. An artwork that is simple at first, but becomes more complicated the closer you look. Zhang Wei, "Daydreaming in the clouds", 2013 at Asia Contemporary Art Show I think that this artwork seems like a sleeping girl, but when you look closely you can see more complicated patterns and ideas that the artist is trying to convey. Her hair transforms into a flurry of patterns and colors that require you looking at it in detail to understand. Patterns lace with each other in a pleasant but confusing way, making the girls' face stand out and is what you notice first. Later your eyes travel to what forms her flowing body, which represents her tranquil spirit and dreams. @youngposthk #YPWhatIsArt
4. An artwork that is lonely. Sam Jinks, 'untitled (kneeling woman)', 2015 at Art Basel. This piece shows a woman in a defensive, solitary position that shows loneliness and discomfort. The paleness in the skin and closed eyes also shows solitude and introverted-ness. Nudity is another large symbol or hidden message in the piece, representing humiliation and desperation, as nudity can be of an embarrassment to oneself. @Youngposthk #YPWhatIsArt
2. An abstract painting that is happy and joyful. Use Kowski, 'turnhalle', 2014. Art Basel. This piece of art is the epitome of abstract, with a beautiful spatter of color in circular or drippy shapes. This is happy and joyful because of its color palette: warm. The variety of red, yellow, pink, white, light green, orange, brown... sends a happy mood through a person. @youngposthk #YPwhatisart
