Avenue des Arts Gallery
12/F – Hollywood Centre
233 Hollywood Road
Sheung Wan, Hong Kong
Opening reception on Thursday September 11th from 6 to 9.30pm
Avenue des Arts Gallery is pleased to announce the upcoming group show KEEP AN EYE ON THE WORLD. The exhibition presents the artworks of the two great artists:
– the painter and photograph RUBEM ROBIERB, from New York, husband of the famous American weather anchor Sam Champion, who offers a sharp and distinctive analysis of the changes that are occurring to our planet… be they by nature or by conflict.
– TEHOS who mixes painting and collage thinks about the symbolism of walls, those which surround us, protect us, but especially those which interfere with fundamental freedoms.
For several months, the armed conflicts are intensifying in the world. The Middle East lives by the rythm of bombs between Israel and the Gaza strip and by the barbaric conflict in Syria and Iraq. Europe must face the war in Ukraine which opposes European and Russian diplomacy corps. Nor are Asia and Africa exempt here with political tensions and conflicts in Mali, Central African Republic, Thailand, Pakistan,…
On the anniversary of the collapse of the World Trade Center, Avenue des Arts inaugurates an exhibition asking questions on the world of the 21st century. In recent years, the world has vacillated between crises, crashes, regime dismantling and innovation, pleasure, excessive consumption; between euphoria and dismay.
The objects supposed to satisfy our desires have enslaved us in the end. From medicine to mobile phones, everything has taken an addictive turn.

About the artists of the exhibition
Brazilian made, fine-arts photographer…south American / Miami style with New York edge. As an Artist, Robierb focuses on the contemporary society, making emphasis in the sociocultural issues that define our current times. He also focuses in the human figure, and the different aspects that reveal the human body language. His approach to photography is rather edgy, political, ironic and critical, and for that very reason, quite motivating. Robierb is keen on photographing all sorts of people, objects and scenes around the world with its different shapes and ethnicities. He intertwines images in a critical way giving his personal vision of our contemporary world. Sometimes, his work are very minimal, eliminating all superfluous details; other times his photographs mix in a kind of collage, as a result of the combining his own images to explosive colors and external subjects. He defines his photographs as SHARP and BOLD, but they are rather provocative and disturbing, conforming an ironic statement mixed with a harmonic beauty.
Born in 1966, Tehos, French visual artist and abstract painter has explored techniques and materials for several years before expanding his work to digital arts, videos, and sculptures.
Between 2005 and 2012, he achieved more than 2500 paintings shipped worldwide.He quickly became known in the French and european arts market where he regularly exhibits his work.In 2007, he started a series of paintings based on torn papers, collages. He has explored different themes and trends in journalism, fact-based articles that he used and transcribes on his canvases.
