Affordable Art Fair Hong Kong's second edition was again held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre in Hall 3D and 3E last March 21 to 23, 2014, where 121 galleries from all over the world showcased artworks of more than a thousand artists. Aside from the regular panel discussions and panel talks, the organizers also proudly launched the “Under HK$10,000 Wall”, as part of their mission to showcase art for every budget, which highlighted a collection of artworks from various participating galleries. 

Here are some photos Jef and I took during the Private View which was held last March 20, 2014, which opened at 6:00 in the evening:

AAF’s banner at the lower ground floor lobby.

The stupendous installation “Love Me!” by Choi Jeona Hwa, a 5-meter pink pig with wings which slowly inflates and deflates, resembling a breathing animal and a symbol of health, wealth and happiness.

Booth C15 of Galerie Francesca. Jef’s two big pieces with Mig’s Villanueva’s artworks on the right.
