Nicolas Vial exhibition opening, Hong Kong

Yesterday, the French May festival (opened May 1, 2015) welcomed the French artist Nicolas Vial’s first ever exhibition in Hong Kong.

Nicolas Vial is an illustrator for Le Figaro (French magazine) and has been publishing satirical editorial cartoons on Le Monde (The World newspaper) for over 30 years. He is widely celebrated for his succinct political humour and his prescience on environmental issues, particularly ocean pollution and climate change.

A series of outreach activities has been planned around the exhibition with Young Friends;
through workshops and sharing sessions, we hope to raise awareness about the severity of environmental decay and how art can play a crucial role in promulgating public awareness
for critical social issues.

This event is in collaborative dialogue with the works of several young artist from the city, made possible with the support of the Friends of the Art Museum of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and the Hong Kong Arts Centre.

HASHT-ART is pleased to meet again Nicolas Vial, and write an article about him. I have discovered his work in 2008, for Les Cadres d’Or Prize, and I have continued to follow him indeed. Dear Nicolas, have a nice exhibition in Hong Kong !
