Arcus Pride Art Exhibition 2019

Hong Kong

Now in its fifth year, Arcus Pride Art in Hong Kong aims to bring together the city's LGBT+ professionals and their allies in a celebration of diversity and inclusion.

The evening has evolved into one of our most highly-anticipated events with our firm's people, its clients, and our peers in the legal sector getting together in support of the diverse community in which we live and work. This year we welcome back Red Chamber Gallery, which has curated a bespoke collection of thought provoking works in different mediums.

Founded in 2012, Red Chamber Gallery is a contemporary art gallery located in Hong Kong. The gallery represents both established and emerging Hong Kong, Asian, and international artists who disseminate their artistic and cultural experience and vision through different media.

Desmond Lo

Desmond graduated from the University of Westminster, London in 2012, obtaining a Bachelor of Arts degree in Animation. He then acquired a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Media from the City University of Hong Kong in 2014. 

The neo-noir photographs and renderings take the viewer on a unique visual journey of Hong Kong, where he grows up with. The high density of high-rise buildings with little alleyways somewhat shaped the citizens' living habit and behavior. This led him to wonder, 'what would the city be after a few decades?'. 

The realistic yet illusionistic, and dystopian city sceneries that Desmond created hence holds a resemblance of his childhood memories in a projected reality. Drawing inspiration from Blade Runner and other cyberpunk works, these works are more than standard street photography of Hong Kong, they are CGI renders of environments and cityscapes.
