The artist will produce a new work from his renowned Painting of Birds series live and the resulting artwork will be donated to The Nature Conservancy in Hong Kong. The second is a “Spoken Poetry” performance by REDIC, a Chicago-born artist now based in Shanghai. The event is sponsored by Artsy.

Fernando Prats Prats was born in Chile in 1967, he represented Chile in the 54th Venice Biennale. The artist creates 'natural paintings' by recording on smoked surfaces fleeting natural actions, from the movements of animals, powerful waves, seismographic vibrations and even imprints of geyser shooting water from the ground (an action made possible through the Guggenheim Fellowship). Prats incorporates new and deeply personal processes for creating natural paintings.
REDIC American, multidisciplinary artist REDIC was born in Chicago, Illinois. A visual artist, poet, spoken word artist and musician, REDIC is a storyteller at heart. Thus, much of the artist’s visual artwork is accompanied with poetry, spoken word and music. His rich body of work is a profound, visual, hyperrealist meditation that narrates the cities in which his artworks were conceived. With over 16 years as professional multidisciplinary artist, he has had solo and group exhibitions in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Berlin, Shanghai, Nanjing, Beijing, in addition to countless concerts and performance art showcases.
