Artemis Art is pleased to present Poesy’s World, a solo exhibition featuring the multi-skilled Poesy Liang. Included in the exhibition shall be artworks selected from several ongoing painting series the artist has created in recent years, including the popular Rooftop Cats (RTC) and Cupcake Cats superflat painting series.
For Poesy, art is a means towards fulfilling her greater humanitarian purpose. Among the initiatives she has started include Helping Angels, a grass-roots movement she began in 2007 based on random acts of kindness, and the Bald Empathy Movement, an interdisciplinary initiative that encompassed music composition, collaboration with photographers from around the world, and painting the White Cartoon Sidewalk Series (WCSS), done on sidewalks across Europe, which helped fund the tour to over 10 countries. A selection of pieces from this series has been included in this exhibition.
Poesy’s World marks one of those rare occasions when the artist’s works are exhibited in a commercial gallery setting. Another important aspect of this exhibition will be the use of blockchain technology for provenance and authentication of artworks. In the past few months, Poesy has been working closely with her blockchain partner LuxTag (an anti-counterfeit and track & trace solution provider) to design an inventory tracking system for her art works. This makes this exhibition one of the first (if not the first in the world) exhibitions featuring artworks incorporating blockchain based tagging solutions.
The exhibition is Artemis Art’s first formal collaboration with Poesy, and kicks off with an opening reception scheduled for 3pm on Sunday, 18 November 2018. Following this, Poesy’s World continues its run until Sunday, 2 December 2018.
