Hong Kong-based creative studio AllRightsReserved has brought artists and creatives from all over the world to the local scene since its establishment in 2003. Their latest gig Meet Project serves as a platform for different creatives to express their vision through mediums previously unexplored. For its second instalment Meet Yu Nagaba Gallery, AllRightsReserved collaborates with Japanese artist Yu Nagaba to launch his first overseas solo exhibition, I’m Your Venus.
Yu Nagaba is known for his great skills in depicting people’s characteristics and presenting conceptual ideas through playful and simply drawing. His works can be seen on magazines, album covers and advertisements. For the Meet Yu Nagaba Gallery project, the artist has brought over 25 Venus-themed original canvas artworks, all derived from his “Ace Hotel” Collection. While the Ace Hotel collection based around creating a fictional story of an imaginary tourist at the hotel, the Venus-themed collection celebrates female personas from his favourite movies, artists and singers who have the images of goddess. The exhibition also showcases a sculpture named “I’M YOUR VENUS” – Nagaba’s first attempt in creating 3D work.
Along with the exhibition is a series of limited edition collectibles including figure, skateboard, transparent tote bag, tees and more, which can be found on site and online.
