Galerie Koo proudly presents “What Year Is It?” Solo exhibition of HK artist Cassian Lau

Galerie Koo is delighted to present a solo exhibition of Hong Kong provocative artist Cassian Lau, with a series of his iconic works, as well as the unprecedented twelve Zodiac paintings in celebration of the Lunar New Year of the Rabbit.

“What Year Is It?” will present for the first time the latest series of work by Cassian Lau – 12 unique paintings of the traditional Chinese Zodiac signs, reimagined by the artist in a witty, bright and colourful version. The unique treatment – typical of the artist’s way of working – intends to highlight the celebratory nature of each Lunar New Year. Each work from the series integrates a different pattern, taking inspiration from various influences, such as aboriginal art, comic books, etc.

The calligraphy behind the animals’ figures is willingly childlike and innocent, as a reflection of the happy sentiment we – and children – feel during the Lunar New Year festivities. The auspicious saying of the calligraphy is destined to bestow up the viewers the wishes for good fortune and good luck typical of this time of the year.
