If you love your fries and Big Mac as much as we love ours, you will definitely enjoy the fast food inspired artworks in Hong Kong-based artist Catherine Grossrieder‘s upcoming solo exhibition.

Entitled “Fast Taste,” the exhibition, which will be held at Over The Influence, a permanent gallery space on Hollywood Road in Hong Kong, will be featuring a series of 15 new and celebrated canvas works that are filled with the cartoon renderings of food objects such as fried chicken, pizza and burgers. 

These bold coloured artworks combine a blend of 80s Hip Hop aesthetics whilst infusing the artist’s signature sense of humour and subversive surrealism.

In doing so, she has created a playful-yet-compelling commentary on the urban myths and stigmas surrounding fast food – one that delves on man’s ecstasy when evoked by junk food, and contrasting that against the media and social influencers’ fixation on staying healthy.

 

Exhibition runs from 10 August 2017 to 31 August 2017 
11am – 7pm daily, Tuesday – Saturday
Over The Influence, 1/F, 159 Hollywood Road Central Hong Kong
