Congratulations to Art+ Shanghai Gallery artist Huang Yulong, who held his first Hong Kong solo exhibition Null a few weeks ago during Art Central/Art Basel weekend in Hong Kong! His sculptures combine urban hip-hop imagery with traditional Asian motifs, bringing together East and West in works of bronze and porcelain. His works are also currently on display in Art+ Shanghai Gallery’s group exhibition Still in Shanghai!
"Bamboo is a symbol of a straight upward man … with honor, you know, like a real gentleman. In fact it is one of the four gentlemen (the four seasons) and the bamboo represents the summer with it’s flexibility; it has the perfect balance of grace and strength, or the Yin and the Yang."
"When the storm comes the bamboo bends with the wind and when it’s gone it returns to it’s upright position without loosing it’s original position, like an inspiration to a strong nation. The bamboo does not produce fruits nor flowers, it’s simple but humble … the young branches at the top of the bamboo trunk will not grow at the same angle as the older branches below, in order to allow sunlight for their elders "
"I am a calligraphy artist and my favorite theme is the bamboo! By the way would you like to check out my paintings maybe buy some from me?”
… there is no place in my backpack, but I might spread the word.
"Nice, well tell them, that I often hang out by these bamboos in Gucheng Park."
Lee Jong Suk holds a record-breaking fan meeting in Shanghai with 800,000 live-streaming fans
March 31, 2015 @ 3:49 am
Many viewers fell in love with Lee Jong Suk as the lovable high schooler in ‘I Hear Your Voice' and the charming reporter in 'Pinocchio’, and Shanghai fans are no exception! On March 28, Lee Jong Suk’s ‘2015 Asia Tour in Shanghai' took place at Luwan Gymnasium with a ton of fans in attendance and a total of 800,000 live-streaming fans!
From the time the event began at 7:30pm and 2 hours after, 800,000 fans watched it live, setting a new record! Now that’s the power of Lee Jong Suk.
March 31 is Lee Jong Suk’s fifth anniversary since his debut as an actor. Some fans held up a placard that read, "The 5 years you were here have been really good," written in Korean, moving Lee Jong Suk.
Lee Jong Suk said, “It’s nice that I can be with the fans who weren’t able to make it through this live streaming. I had heard about fans who weren’t able to come because they weren’t feeling well or they lived too far through letters. I was wondering how I would repay them [for their support], and I felt regret. So I’m so happy to hear that so many people were able to join in through the live streaming. Thank you so much.”
Exploring rooftops is an unique experience for me since I doubt I’ll ever attempt to trespass when I go back to the states. The view from some roofs are incredible and the fact that not many people would get to experience that view makes it that much better.
