Cyrcle hosts a very successful workshop. The room was filled with giggling students who really enjoyed interacting with the Cyrcle boys, showing off their work and asking them questions about being artists. Some more amazing workshops to come!
We gathered many stares as Victor Ash worked on his piece for the outside of the building last Thursday night. Ash has an amazing ability to carry on working with the flashes of cameras going off in his face, true dedication to his work! Slowly but surely this amazing show is coming together! Be sure to stop by if you’re in Quarry Bay to see Ash’s work on the outside before the show opens.
Last Thursday evening saw the first in an exciting line of workshops coming up. Kicking it off was Victor Ash who taught his students how to cut stencils and spray paint. Everyone left with their own version of Ash’s work, which was also signed by the artist himself. As the workshop was winding up people talked about going to another one as this one was amazing! I think was can call this a success.
Tonight is the night, lets dance our pants off at our ‘OFF BASEL’ party.

LITTLE FEET, BIG RECORDS
Victoria Christina Hesketh, better known by her stage name Little Boots, is an English electropop singer-songwriter and DJ. Her stage name comes from a nickname given to her by a friend, a reference to her unusually
As a musician, Little Boots sings and plays the piano, keyboards, synthesiser, Stylophone and a Japanese electronic instrument called Tenori-on. Hesketh has cited as influences The Human League, Gary Numan, Kraftwerk, Pink Floyd, Kylie Minogue, Britney Spears and Jean Michel Jarre. She has a soprano vocal range.
We think her brand of new-wave-electro-disco will be the perfect way to help art week go off with a bang. So dust off your dancing boots, whatever the size… and get your ticket quick!
small&TALL Soundsystem will be also be playing on the night.

‘Your enjoying using power tools?’ One half of the American art duo Cyrcle, nods excitedly . Cyrcle have teamed up with Victor Ash for this exhibition in the most 21st century way by using skype to discuss their idea with each other. Right now what looks like organised chaos is the lively working process of Cyrcle. They paint, they chisel, they pull bits of concrete off the walls. This is a show not to be missed. Get ready Hong Kong Cyrcle have landed!
London educated street artist Vhils from Portugal is the first of a month of artists to hit the WORK IN PROGRESS exhibition space. The public exhibition will be open from June 17th – July 7th.
