In what is set to be a defining moment in London’s art scene this year, HOFA Gallery will launch their new flagship space in the heart of London’s prestigious Mayfair on 18 March 2020. The highly anticipated state-of-the-art 4000 sq. ft space will see HOFA make their permanent mark on the art world to the delight of collectors and enthusiasts in London and international art markets.
HOFA will commemorate the launch with an inaugural exhibition featuring a new and innovative collection of captivating and vibrant sculptural paintings of renowned contemporary artist, Zhuang Hong Yi. Colourful, exquisitely detailed and inspired by nature, Zhuang’s 3-dimensional paintings have been a favourite with collectors since his emergence as an artist of reckoning.
