For young entrepreneur Orlando Ho, contemporary art fulfils a passion for aesthetics as well as offering excellent investment opportunities.

Orlando Ho has always had art in his life. The entrepreneur behind acclaimed mobile gaming app Age of Quantum: Revolution coming, and the son of tycoon Stanley Ho, 25-year-old Orlando was raised in an art-loving family and is now cultivating his own tastes in art and building his personal collection.

“Visiting art galleries has always been one of my favourite ways to relax, especially when I was studying in the US,” says Ho. In terms of his own collection, he adds; “I’m just a beginner. I’m influenced by the vivid use of colours, the strong expressionism of Japanese art, and many contemporary Japanese and Chinese works.”

Ho says he chooses works for his collection both for their aesthetic qualities and for their potential investment value and while the former is a matter purely of his own taste, a professional team is on hand to help him to better evaluate the latter.

“My collection is based on what I love,” he explains. “Art is unlike other investments: it must be able to speak to you, touch your soul, inspire you and make you happy. But I also discuss acquisitions with my team as they’ve undertaken extensive research and understand the artist’s background, experience and track record. It helps to understand more about the artist and their work, which is important if you want to avoid getting fooled by the price tag.

“If I encounter anything that’s appealing to me, I’ll ask my team to evaluate if it’s the best timing to purchase it. That’s what investment is all about: when to buy and when to sell. How much information you have is very important and who your secret adviser is behind the scenes.”

Ho gave these views during the launch of an exhibition that showcases two of the brightest stars of Chinese contemporary art. It features both the bold, uninhibited, fluid lines of Ann Niu along with the playful, conceptually complex compositions of Qiu Sheng Xian. Presented by art-investment consultancy Art Futures Group, the exhibition runs until April 9 and is located on the first and second floors of the Water Zone at Elements shopping mall in Kowloon.

兩位上海當代藝術家作品展

Art Futures Group向來以推廣中國當代文化藝術為己任,一直致力支持和重視具有發展潛力的中國藝術家,銳意提高其作品的曝光率,最近就連同Art Futures Gallery攜手呈獻中國當代藝術展覽 (Chinese Contemporary Art Exhibition),展出兩位上海當代藝術家的作品,分別是牛安的17幅畫作、以及邱勝賢的6幅畫作,讓市民能夠近距離接觸藝術。

牛安和邱勝賢曾多次於世界各地舉行個人展覽及獲邀出席國際文化藝術交流,兩人風格看似迥異,但同樣充滿東方的古典和西方的時尚,而且藝術成就同於國際藝術舞台大放異采。

牛安擅長在色彩豐富畫面上勾畫躍動的線條,變幻糾結的風格隱隱透露女性的身體曲線,雖複雜亦單純,可以看出她勇於突破常規,同時亦善於保留傳統。

邱勝賢善於顛覆固有的觀念,透過打破既定界限展現藝術的自由,並且運用符號的建構訴說情感,讓人沉迷當中的故事和想像。

日期:即日至4月9日
