STROLLING CHILE

As the first artist to participate in the creation of Chinese contemporary art and having experienced the 85 New Wave and Political Pop Art of the 1990s, Yu’s painting career has quietly passed a half century.

Yu's latest works and some of his earlier works were first seen in his solo exhibition “The Representational and the Abstract" in the ShanghART Gallery at West Bund. It is well known that representational elements and abstract elements blend into each other in Yu's works and are very distinct characteristics in his painting language.

People have used “uninhibited absurdity”, “superlative craftsmanship”, even “nothing good” to describe Superstudio, but the legendary group that has never completed a physical architectural work. However, it was this group that inspired countless master architects including Zaha and Koolhaas.

In the mid-1960s, when the Italian economy had just recovered from the World War II, the young hippies were still not willing to wake up from the dream of "Utopia”. At this point, Adolfo Natalini, studying at the University of Florence's Department of Architecture, came up with some ideas that seemed "non-mainstream" at that time. He did not want to be like any other architect and become the capitalist’s building tool after graduation. At that point in school, he met Cristiano Toraldo di Francia, who was also questioning and thinking about the nature of architecture.

The sunshine of Australia brings gorgeous colours, while the antique charms of China reveals mystery. Her porcelain, a mixed article of eastern and western, boasts traditional and modern flavours. It is not only China's treasure, but also the world's.

Poets use words to express their feelings while painters use ink. Dr. Naoko, a Chinese Australian ceramist, uses porcelains to voice her appreciation of life. As an artist who has lived at home and abroad, she has held exhibitions in many countries. Moreover, international hotels, transnational cooperations, as well as collectors have collected her works.

As technology becomes more advanced and digitized, traditional methods of recording time now carries even more cultural connotations.

SIHH is no simple exhibition of fine timepieces; it’s also the stage for watch masters to present their craftsmanship in creating the art of timekeeping, be it about romanticism, or aesthetic value.

Local designer brands, FENGYI TAN, Reclothing Bank, WHM, and HAIZHENWANG have all attracted attention with their model makeup during the 2018 S/S fashion shows.

Fashion design never stops changing. Designers vary in their perspectives and concepts as well as the approaches of their design.

Design is creating from zero to everything. It requires the participants to be extremely creative. Dedicated designers must rely on themselves to secure a promising career. For instance, the current creative director of Gucci leaves us an artistic impression.

Rococo is the leading style of French classical public architecture. When it comes to a mansion, however, Rococo is the perfect choice to interpret arts and comfort.

In the 1720s, the Rococo style was developed upon the Baroque style that came before it and popularized among aristocrats. To translate this complicated art style into a modern spatial language, however, is not an easy work for most designers.

Green plants create comfort and livelihood in any indoor space. They also erase the boundaries produced by walls. Here, you can find what you want in life – childhood, joy, or dreams.

Indoor design is not simply about creating an indoor space. Rather, it’s the process of creating the poetry of life. The Sales Centre of Cifi Fenglu Plaza is like a seed buried in the forest. Here it grows and tells the green story of its natural origin and designer Alessio Zhang is the writer of this story.

Samuel Johnson, the prestigious English scholar, once said that, “when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life.” Well, if you have ever been to Spain, you would find his remark is more suitable to the nation lying quietly on the Iberian Peninsula.

Spain is a vibrant, genteel country, simultaneously ancient and modern. Bull fighting, Flamenco, and guitar music are all the essence of the nation’s glorious art. Meanwhile, she also celebrates her history through the splendid palaces, solemn churches, and magnificent castles.

There are numerous wonderful destinations throughout the world waiting for you to discover. Chile, undoubtedly, is one of them. Located in the southern hemisphere, incredible Chile extends her warm welcome.

Chile stretches through 38 latitudes with over 4300 kilometres in length from north to south. It’s no wonder to see vastly different weather in different parts of the country: the north is dry and cold and gives rise to the amazing Atacama Desert; the middle is mild, making it perfect for wineries.
