The widely anticipated Art Basel 2013 Hong Kong saw some very interesting visitors who came to the most prominent art fair in the world. There were quite a lot of leading celebrities and leaders who came to the fair which have in recent years included the likes of Kate Moss and Chelsea FC owner and Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich.
It is not always that one gets to see so many known people around the world who seemed to be interested in an art show which saw the works of Spanish artist Cesar Manrique who showcased his trademark art car on a BMW. Meanwhile, Swedish vodka Absolut enjoyed some time in the spotlight too being given a makeover of such.
The world’s biggest art players like White Cube were involved while the Victoria Miro gallery of London too had its role in the show. Known as the Olympics of the art world, it was a good outing for the Malaysian art scene which was represented by Wei-Ling Gallery through Ivan Lam’s Vending COMA project, which saw Ivan inviting Malaysian artists to participate in his installation of a vending machine which houses the works of miniature artworks produced by the artists themselves.
