Andrew Klonaris is an Australian artist with a focus in lowbrow and pop art. His daring style, reflected through his art pieces, are striking, humorous and not for the faint-hearted.
"I love living in Hong Kong and everything about it. I enjoy seeing the vast vistas and the tiny details, from cityscapes and harbour views, bustling market and street scenes to observing reflections in puddles and slowing drying paint on fire hydrants, I love it all,".
Richard's work encompasses both 'urban sketching' and 'en plein air' painting created on location as well as detailed works of art created in the studio. He uses both pen, ink, acrylics, pastels, and watercolours and is continually inspired by Hong Kong's many different aspects. He goes on to say:
"I've been told that my style is quite distinctive. The words 'perspective' and 'detailed' come up a lot. I suppose that may be from my design background as I was a product designer for a number of years. Now that I am creating art, I feel like I have awakened and can see Hong Kong anew. My art has taught me to observe carefully my surroundings. The more I look, the more there is to see".
