BAG showcased two of his colourful wall sculptures.

David Stein to present Exuberance E-mail

Those who were not able to see abstract artist David Stein’s work at his recent solo exhibition in Hong Kong are sure to be happy that he will be exhibiting some his recent works at Hotel ICON from 28 March through 2 April to complement Art Basel Hong Kong 2018. The theme of the show is Exuberance.

Stein has chosen vibrant examples of his abstract painting for this exhibition as a joyous counterpoint to the prevailing artistic moods. “I hope my work will cause people to smile, to reflect and to find something joyous,” he said.

This will be Stein’s fourth solo exhibition in Hong Kong. His paintings are like the artist: layered, complicated and passionate.

The abstract expressionist works – polychromatic flashes of insight – exude emotion and are self-defining and grounded in a deep spirituality.

Israel and China: from the Tang Dynasty to Silicon Wadi E-mail

Joint Publishing (JP) of Hong Kong has just published the book Israel and China: from the Tang Dynasty to Silicon Wadi by Mark O’Neill, with editions in English and traditional Chinese.

The author launched the Chinese edition at the recent Taipei International Book Fair, which was held from 6 to 11 February, and will launch the English-language edition in Hong Kong this month.

Mark says the book was inspired by many remarkable Jewish people he met dur ing nearly 17 years of reporting in the mainland. They include Shaul Eisenberg, who pioneered trade between Israel and China, especially trade in arms; Roberta Lipson, who set up a chain of hospitals and medical clinics in China; those who set up the model Israeli dairy farm outside Beijing, with the highest milk yields in the country, and Maurice Ohana of Shanghai, who made dentures in Pudong for people in Paris with poor teeth.

From 2003 to 2006, he worked for the South China Morning Post in Shanghai. This gave him an opportunity to learn of the city’s dense Jewish history and meet those returning to see where their parents and grandparents had lived before and during WWII.
