Famed designer Christian Louboutin hosted a private event during Art Basel Miami on Friday December 7 to celebrate the solo exhibition of one of China’s most unique artists, Ye Hongxing. Located at the design house’s infamous Design District boutique, the festivities kicked off with DJ Chelsea Leyland, who spun all night with guests as varied as Dita Von Teese and Cameron Silver in attendance.
Born in Guangxi in 1972, Ye Hongxing’s work was selected by the Curator of the Asian Art Museum in California and the Director of Art Cologne as one of China’s top 20 young emerging artists in Chinese Art Prize 2006. Ye’s work is widely collected by high profile figures in China and she is gaining more international attention than ever after showcasing last year at ART ASIA during Art Basel Miami Beach with ART LEXÏNG as well as her first solo exhibition “Modern Utopia” in London at SCREAM Gallery this September. Ye Hongxing is represented by ART LEXÏNG, a Miami-based art gallery which is committed to promoting museum- quality works from emerging Asian artists, each with truly original and challenging perspectives filtered through photography, sculpture and traditional two-dimensional media.
