Every artist in this selection has achieved mastery in her/his own unique way. Their work speaks of the focus and dedication they put in every brush or pen stroke applied to their respective medium. Everyone of them performs wonders of creativity and imagination, and surprises me again and again with a new approach, and a different way to use his/her talents. I am grateful to every one of those great artists for the privilege to present their work to my friends. My special thanks go to Anita Wong, the curator of the Asia team, for her generous support. - ivan pešić

"What interest me is that the Impressionists and Lingnan painters lived in an age of struggle between modernity and a traditional order.
I don't categorize myself nor my art as Traditional nor Modern, like me, they are both.
I don't want to give up my identity to be Claude Monet nor Chao Chao An, because I live in a different era. I treasure my freedom of thinking and freedom of creativity. I feel obligated (in a good way) to push the limit and develop a new style of Lingnan style painting as a 4th generation painter; something that represent me and my era, I will dedicate my life time into doing this!" – Anita Yan Wong

His art takes us back to old comic books from the 50's and 60's, and to the pop
art era, but also to the worlds of kabuki theater, and traditional Chinese opera.
Even nostalgia isn't what it used to be.
