One of the fair's spotlight initiatives this year is the Special Project, which invites artists from diverse disciplines to create exclusive large-scale installations and immersive experiences.

Speakeasy Bar: Neon

Curated by Taiwanese-American artist Jonathan Jay Lee, Neon draws inspiration from the hidden alley bars that dot Hong Kong's local landscapes. Transporting Sham Shui Po to the art fair, visitors can enjoy Lee's illustrative artworks depicting Hong Kong scenes while sampling Hong Kong-inspired cocktails like the Dan Ta Sour, crafted by Kiyoshi Hoshimi-Caines, former Head Sommelier and Beverage Director at Michelin-starred restaurants Yardbird and RŌNIN.

A Feast of Chinese Ink Painting

Throughout Chinese history, ink has transcended mere artistic medium, symbolising culture and serving as a conduit for Eastern philosophy, worldviews, and aesthetic sensibilities. Today, Chinese ink painting is undergoing a modernization renaissance.
The exhibition spotlights five innovative Chinese artists: Cai Tianmei's experimental, accidental ink paintings created live during the fair; Yi Yan's inkworks reflecting contemporary social issues; Li Dongyao's macro and microscopic Chinese ink paintings on screens; Liu Jia's surrealist inkworks reflecting the "present continuous" mindset; and Zhang Bin's sculptural interpretations of humanity through "mushroom" forms.

Ceet Fouad's Street Art-Inspired Wall

The Algerian-born artist Ceet Fouad adorns a wall with his signature vibrant "chickanos." Through harmonious colours, Ceet's chickens embody emotions and personalities, conveying a critique of modern society. His work challenges conformity, emphasising the importance of embracing individuality over blindly following trends. Ceet employs his chicken figures to express personal experiences and thoughts, while satirising the social phenomenon of people suppressing unique traits to fit in. For him, graffiti – both legal and illegal – serves as a powerful means to engage society.

Changing Seasons with Ewan David Eason's Lenticular Leaves & Tree Installation

Ewan David Eason's new series for TAG Fine Arts, "Season's Change", is a captivating exploration of the colours, growth stages, and patterns found in trees as they cycle through the ever-shifting four seasons. This series aims to draw the viewer's focus to the sacred beauty and diversity of our living landscapes. Accompanying the lenticular "Season's Change" pieces, this special project will feature a life-sized tree at the fair, with hundreds of Eason's lenticular leaves hanging from its branches. As viewers walk around the installation, they'll witness the changing of seasons unfold.

A 3D Art Wall Inspired by Keith Ancog's Fluid Brushstrokes

Sanctum Gallery has crafted an immersive 3D rendition emulating the fluid brushwork of Keith Ancog's "Envisage" painting. Employing an array of fabrics, textures and layered depths, this work draws viewers into Ancog's spontaneous, free-spirited artistic vision where art transcends boundaries.

A Vibrant Bear Sculpted from Repurposed Straws by Korean Artist ChanBoo Jung

Korean artist ChanBoo Jung's signature bear sculpture is crafted from an unexpected medium - plastic drinking straws. Inspired by how straws resemble scattered seeds after consumption, Jung saw potential to unite these discarded materials into new shapes and meanings, just as tiny seeds can sprout into vibrant forests. The colourful straw pieces become a metaphor for constant renewal, imbuing the work with layered significance.

The exhibition features three distinct spaces - the azure blue room, rust-red room and white room - arranged to function as curated canvases, inviting viewers to explore connections between the artworks and dialogues they spark.
