JPS Gallery Hong Kong presents a special exhibition to showcase the first collaborative project between BESPOKE and Okokume, and a series of new paintings by the artist.
To celebrate Chinese New Year, BESPOKE has invited Okokume to create a special artwork featuring her iconic characters Cosmic Girl and Dino Star. A recreation of the artwork can be found on the festive red packet. Place these red packets side by side to reveal the full festive artwork that wishes good health and fortune to you and your loved ones.
Okokume is proud to present three new paintings as a special showcase at JPS Gallery. Through striking blended portraits of Cosmic Girl and her companions, Okokume encourages the audience to engage in her world of fantasy. The Cosmic Girl in Tú Eres Mi Hogar (2021) symbolises the artist’s invitation to take refuge in her poetic and harmonious world. Juxtaposed with two other works of Cosmic Girl surrounded by her comrades Okokume emphasises the importance of connection with one another and invites viewers to take part in the dialogues taking place in her paintings. Accompanying the new series of paintings at JPS Gallery will be a celebrated bronze sculpture, The Eyes of the Soul (2020), in various sizes this time.
Welcome the Tiger’s fortunes, JPS Gallery wishes you a happy, healthy and prosperous new year!
