ODD ONE OUT are proud to be hosting ‘Elephants in Hong Kong’, the first Hong Kong exhibition for London-via-Paris artist Guillaume Cornet (aka Mr Guil).

Guil’s cityscapes capture elements of life rather than people. After visiting South America and witnessing the activity within the communities in the favelas, Guil returned to London and set out to create his own vision of cities like London, Paris & New York. The clothes hanging from a window, the couple arguing in the kitchen, Guil’s work captures the theatre of everyday life in an interesting, intimate and at times, hilarious way.

Screen printed in monochrome then hand coloured, each piece is truly unique and reflects the mood and season of the artist, each artwork takes over 100 hours. Using very traditional methods with very little reliance on technology, Guil’s ensures that his work maintains as much character as possible.

Mr Guil is excited to come to Hong Kong and unveil artwork featuring Hong Kong cityscapes for the very first time. Guil’s work featuring Hong Kong perfectly captures the smells, sounds and characters we experience on a daily basis. Orginal miniture drawing of Hong Kong transports will also be shown for the first time.
