Most people know Kim Robinson the celebrity hairstylist. Now there's Kim Robinson the painter. Hong Kong's mane man showed a different cut of creativity on Thursday at the Cat Street Gallery when his exhibition, Wishful Thinking, opened. 'I'm not sure if anyone is going to show up,' he worried early in the evening. Those jitters faded quickly as plenty of fans and clients, including singer Sandy Lam Yik-lin, arrived to show some love. It seems that dabbling in paint and canvas has long been a hobby for Robinson, but it was gallery owner Mandy D'Abo who pushed him to show his abstract human figures in a solo show. 'It's called Wishful Thinking because I've always wanted to be a hunky guy,' Robinson said. 'In school in Australia, everyone was a jock, a football player. I always wanted to be like that but I was too short. So when I did these paintings, originally it was commissioned for a health club so I put athletic, kind of muscular figures in them. The project was never finished but I kept the paintings that I liked. Mandy saw them one day and decided, I love it, I have to have them!' Don't expect Robinson to give up his hairbrush for a paintbrush full-time though. 'I've been a nervous wreck all week. But I figured you never know until you try something different. I don't know if people will like my painting. If they do, great, if not, that's fine too. As long as there's a reaction. The worst thing is if people are indifferent.' The show runs until February 8.
