Lladró Supports Local Artists made its debut in Hong Kong on 14 May 2015, with an exclusive event at which media and select VIPs were invited to discover Lladró's fascinating world of porcelain art while supporting Hong Kong's emerging artists
Lladró Supports Local Artists — the first event of its kind ever hosted by the brand — recently offered select VIPs and media a journey of discovery to the craftsmanship and meticulous creation process of Lladró's porcelain figurines, while also providing a platform for the city's emerging talents to showcase their work and introduce them onto Hong Kong's bourgeoning art scene.
Attending from Los Angeles, California, was artist Gary Baseman, who has teamed up with high-end porcelain house on a collection of figures for an ongoing series, The Guest. As the event's special celebrity speaker, Baseman took part in panel discussions hosted by Hong Kong's most influential chronicler on the city's architecture, art and design scene, JJ Acuna of the Wanderlister+.
Showcasing their work at Lladró Supports Local Artists were Hong Kong's premier emerging artists Erika Wong, Andrew Luk, Charles Munka and Johnson Tsang. The exhibition was curated by Pilar Cano of Nice to Meet You, a project that brings together artists and brands.
