AN exciting new art exhibition starts next month featuring the world's top contemporary artists. Art Trends 95 will be at the Convention and Exhibition Centre from May 25 to 28. David and Lee Ann Lester, directors of International Fine Art Expositions, see it following the success of last year's inaugural contemporary art fair - New Trends. Exhibiting artists include Brazilian Romero Britto, Yuri Gorbachev - nephew of former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev - Frederick Hart and Scott Jacobs. 'Once again international art dealers will be returning to Hong Kong to what has now become the hub of the art world in Southeast Asia,' Mrs Lee said. The centre will be transformed into an art venue with a difference. There will be live jazz nightly and extended hours until 10pm. 'Art Trends 95 will offer a diverse cultural experience, live jazz and great food as well as the chance to meet international artists - the equivalent of attending some 50 art gallery openings simultaneously,' added Mrs Lee. Romero Britto will be in Hong Kong next week to help publicise the event. He has captured attention with his upbeat style, which combines neo-pop cubism with bold outlines and bright exotic colours. In 1989 he was commissioned by Absolut Vodka to join their showcase of artists featuring Andy Warhol and Kenny Scharf. Former US President George Bush collects his work and he has been signed up by Pepsi to do a series of paintings to be taken on a world tour. He also does a lot of work for charity, especially children's hospitals. Yuri Gorbachev, also in the Absolut Vodka commercials, depicts images from folklore. His work is collected by Mikhail Baryshnikov and Marcello Mastroianni. Frederick Hart's most famous sculpture, The Three Servicemen stands at the Vietnam Memorial in Washington DC. Scott Jacobs is the only artist worldwide licensed to paint Harley Davidson motorcycles.
