      With its labyrinth of intricate canals and gondolas, Venice during the Renaissance was a picture of serenity. As the shimmering waves from the canals intertwine with the haze of the romantic hues reflected from the surrounding architecture, the lingering elegance and splendour of the city was ever more present. Once an important trading and cultural hub, the enchanting lagoon city brought together merchants, voyagers, scholars and artists from all over the world. It was from this affluent setting and unique cultural atmosphere that came the birth of the Venetian School of painters, who were renowned for the use of rich colours and the profound depiction of human emotions through exceptional artistic abilities.  

This exhibition showcases the world-renowned collection of the Uffizi in Italy, featuring classic works by Titian and other Venetian master painters, such as Giorgione, Tintoretto and Veronese. Highlight exhibits include Titian’s Flora and Venus and Cupid with a Dog and a Partridge, Giorgione’s Moses Undergoing Trial by Fire, Tintoretto’s Venus, Cupid and Vulcan and Veronese’s Baptism of Christ among others. All 50 exhibits are displayed in Hong Kong for the first time, many of which have never been previously exhibited in Asia.

Trista Zhu | HIYA Member

Congratulations to Ms. Trista Zhu, a member of HIYA, on her successful exhibition at the 5th Floor Exhibition Hall of the Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre from 11 to 16 October.

Trista Zhu can't recall exactly when her passion for art began. It initially started with photography, capturing not just the typical landscapes but also the diverse individuals she encountered on the streets. She would imagine the different lives they led. Later, she ventured into oil painting, finding that the richness of oil colors allowed her to express her photographic works in a deeper and more unique manner.

HIYA supports various forms of artistic exchange. We welcome all members to submit and share their latest activities and works with us. Contributors will receive a exquisite gift from our association, and the works will also be promoted for free by the HIYA. Please stay tuned for more updates on our Hong Kong International Youth Artists Society's art events.
