相信每人小時候也有一個熊啤啤陪伴成長，它不僅是我們的玩伴，也是充滿靈性的同伴。為慶祝 13a New Street Art Gallery 隆重開幕，潮流文化藝術家 Mr. Likey 會在 6 月 18 日至 7 月 7 日舉辦新晉的最新個人作品展 – 「Bear In Mind」 。是次展覽以「Bear In Mind」為主題，除了展覽以 Mr. Likey 創作的作品為主外，更希望大眾能「Bear In Mind」記住令你開心的作品。
Most of us have a teddy bear friend when we were kids. It isn’t only a toy that makes us happy but a friend who accompanies us during good and bad times. To celebrate the Grand Opening of 13a New Street Art Gallery, we are proud to present a solo exhibition by a famous contemporary artist Mr. Likey of the theme “Bear In Mind” from 18th June until 7th July. Mr.Likey displays his signature style of blending street art aesthetics with cartoon and playful elements in this collection. These unique art pieces comprised a mix of cartoon characters.
新晉潮流文化藝術家 Mr. Likey 糅合街頭藝術及強烈個人風格的畫作，呈獻一系列由經典卡通及漫畫人物重塑及變奏而成的獨特作品。今次展覽以”Bear in mind”作主題，除了藝術家希望將作品帶給觀眾在腦海留下一點感覺和記憶外，展覽的作品也以 Donut Bear 冬甩小熊為主打，令到本身”Bear in mind”的”Bear”多了一份雙重意思，增加了其趣味性。除了一系列以 Donut Bears 為主題的畫作之外，更用上以紐約塗鴉藝術家 尚·米榭·巴斯奇亞(Jean-Michel Basquiat) 頭像為概念的創作，以表示對名師的致敬。透過「畫中有畫」的表達方式，Mr. Likey 展示出從不同背景進行多角度思考的卓越能力，讓人感受到美好表面背後的另一番含意，在一眾 Kidult 間引起窩心共鳴。
By having the theme “Bear in Mind”, Mr.Likey wants to bring excitement to the audiences through Donut Bears and hopes the audience will “Bear in Mind” and remember these art pieces that make you HAPPY! In this exhibition, Mr.Likey would also like to pay tribute to his muse, the legendary New York based graffiti artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, and has incorporated Basquiat’s style in few of his paintings. Through this concept of “Art Inside Art”. Mr.Likey explores the diversity of thoughts from his unique cultural background and experience and hopes the audience will be able to resonance with his path of selfdiscovery behind the glamourous superficial life of kidults.
今次展覽聯乘高級藝術紙品品牌 notio 以小熊推出高級限量版 Art Print，分金、銀兩款，每款更有夜光效果。
We collaborate with a high-end art-printing brand notio in this exhibition. Notio will present limited editions of a few selected pieces in this exhibition by Mr.Likey, in Gold and Silver version. All of them will have a glow-in-the-dark effect.
