Are you a fan of Rene Magritte but can't quite afford the millions you need to buy one of his surreal paintings? Your best bet then would be to bid for a Magritte-inspired work that three Post artists (left to right), senior designer Wilson Tsang, graphic designer James Whittle and art director Terry Pontikos, created last week as part of the Illusion of Art street-painting event, and done in conjunction with the Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation at Taikoo Place. They have since framed the work and are now auctioning it off in support of Operation Santa Claus. For a chance to win this impressive piece, e-mail your bid to with your name and contact information. The starting bid was HK$5,000 and the auction's deadline is December 20.
