SW: I wish I knew more about the exciting art scenes across Asia.
SW: That there’s less potential for young and emerging artists from the Asian region.
SW: Sawangwongse Yawnghwe. His work provides multifaceted perspectives on painting, emotion, political history, and philosophical thinking. I believe his painting resonates with the contemporary world on a very deep level.

SW: Hong Kong-based artist Kong Chun Hei’s post on the last day of Art Basel Hong Kong.
SW: Taiwan-based artist So Yo-Hen will present his first solo exhibition since 2017. This exhibition consists of a 50-day onsite project, where the artist reimagines the gallery space as an unaltered landscape where daily art practices take place.
SW: Hong Kong-based artist Kong Chun Hei. His unperturbed sense of observation and the uncanny atmosphere his work evokes fascinate me. He has created a unique artistic language weaving together his drawings, his videos, and installations. As you enter the space he creates, an immediate sense of solitude enfolds you.

SW: My mentor advised me to branch out from my mother’s gallery, to establish a platform dedicated to contemporary art in Asia.
SW: My experiences over the years. Not just collecting art but also being part of the scene.
