Woaw Gallery: Maxx Headroom by Michael Lau
Hong Kong-based artist Michael Lau, known as the “Godfather of the Designer Toy”, is presenting a solo exhibition at Woaw Gallery in Central. Original paintings and sculptures from the artist’s signature Gardener series showcase an important part of Lau’s career. Delving into Maxx Heardoom, hero of the Gardener series, the exhibition explores the concept of youth, passion and perseverance through a selection of works old and new. It also reflects Lau’s own journey through the character of Maxx as a metaphor for the artist himself — a strong-willed character who sacrifices everything for his passion.
Until October 23. Woaw Gallery, 9 Queens Road Central
