In our #culturalportraits series, we intend to present the different players of the artistic and cultural scene, from artists and performers to events or exhibitions’ organisers, and to the ones behind the curtain, the women and men handling the logistic and the technique, etc.
After a successful career in banking, Olivier Demblum joined Opera Gallery Hong Kong to manage it with the art and love of a collector. He shared with us his ambitious vision for the well-established gallery in its new premises in Central and the exhibition of the three American superstars of Pop Art, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring and Kenny Scharf. He talked about the art market in Hong Kong, the challenges to run a large-scale gallery and the opportunities within the city and its latest cultural developments.
All exhibitions and activities of the gallery can be found here.
