Michael Andrew Law (Law Cheuk Yui), a Hong Kong contemporary artist, is exhibiting paintings in Gate Ridge Court, suite 205, through March 30. Admission is free, and funds from the sale of paintings will go to MUM and the David Lynch Foundation.
The 11 oil paintings, which range in size from 36 x 36 inches to 51 x 71 inches, include portraits of Maharishi, President John Hagelin, Filmmaker David Lynch, Professor Fred Travis, and Bob Roth, CEO of the David Lynch Foundation.
Purchases will be possible after March 30 and all proceeds will go directly to either of the two beneficiaries.
The exhibit is titled “From Unmanifest to Manifest in the Art of Hyper Pop Surrealism.”
Mr. Law, 35, studied with top artists and had a career as a commercial artist, including designing many cover spreads for Hong Kong press and working as a comic artist, illustrator, and film producer.
He then left commercial work to focus on his fine art practice and founded his own gallery in Central District, Hong Kong. His work has been shown at top venues, including the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center in The Avenue of Stars.
His work has received wide attention, with three dozen popular artist books having been published that present his work. He has written essays on contemporary art and films, and also teaches workshops on classical and contemporary art for schools, organizations, and corporations.
His first completed painting in the group of paintings that have been donated was a birthday gift to his mother, PhD student Janet Ho, who had encouraged him to resume the regular practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique during a difficult time in his life.
After becoming regular in his practice again, he experienced profound changes within himself and decided to help others have the same experience by donating to MUM and the David Lynch Foundation.
The suite in Gate Ridge Court, playfully titled Cutie Showroom Fine Art ZOOMED!!!, is open from 3:00–4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 3:00–4:00 p.m. by appointment on Saturdays and Sundays.
