You can also join the Harbour Arts Sculpture Park Jockey Club Arts Education Programme; which includes a 90-minute Guided Tour to get to know the stories behind the sculptures.
If you don't have time to make it before the Harbour Arts Sculpture Park exhibition ends, you can still visit Yoshitomo Nara's exhibition; which will be in Hong Kong until May 12th. On the 12th floor of 80 Queen's Road in Central, Hong Kong, Pace Gallery inaugurated its second gallery in Hong Kong with an exhibition of new works by Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara. The exhibition includes new ceramic sculptures, paintings, and works on paper that continue the pioneering contemporary artist’s innovative approach to representation and form.

Yoshitomo Nara was born in 1959 and acquired his Master’s Degree at Aichi Prefectural University of Fine Arts and Music in 1987, then moved on to Germany to study at Kunstakademie Düsseldorf (State Academy of Arts) in 1988. Under A.R. Penck, Nara attained the title “Meisterschüler” (master pupil) and proceeded to work in Cologne from 1994 to 2000. In 1998, Nara taught at the University of California, Los Angeles for three months as a guest professor. The artist returned to Japan in 2000, initially working in Tokyo before moving to Tohigi in 2005.
His paintings are expressions of color that breathe life into his bold images, his sculptures bear traces of his fingers that have shaped their forms, and his drawings capture the spontaneity of his daily thoughts. Nara has also exhibited his photographic works, which depict his life and travels.
