Basquiat, Haring, Scharf

01 April - 14 May 2022

Opera Gallery is pleased to present Basquiat, Haring and Scharf, a selection of more than 36 works by the three American artists in our Hong Kong space.


The “three musketeers” of New York’s East Village have each in their own way tried to renew figuration, creating three very recognisable styles. Despite their rivalry, these artists are much more complementary than one might think at first sight. Through their aesthetic claims it is in fact the societal ideals that they have sought to represent in their own and shared struggles. Through their friendship, they fought against the elitism of art, racism and disease, by bringing a form of activism in their works.


Opera Gallery seeks to offer visitors and collectors a visual immersive experience to present these three artists, their ideas and their works.
