ART DE VIVRE HOUSE COLLECTION
One of the most exciting openings in Hong Kong this month is Art de Vivre Collection’s opening of its very first flagship Carré d’artistes gallery. Headquartered in the heart of Hong Kong, the aim behind the gallery is to democratize art – they want to open the doors of opportunity to art lovers, enthusiasts and local artists in the region.
It will be a prominent platform of accessible art brands in Asia and will include paintings, sculptures, photography, and digital mediums. The project is spearheaded by Arthur De Villepin (the son of former French Prime Minister, Dominique de Villepin), and he aims to drive his passion and credible knowledge of art to get past the jargon of artspeak. He wants to expand and diversify art lovers through clear, accessible and engaging encounters. Buying art is not something to be feared he says. Maybe it’s time to start your own art collection at Carré d’artistes!
