My favourite place to relax in Hong Kong is…

Shek O—the short trek to the south side of the island is truly magical, like stepping through a wormhole and popping out in a sleepy beach village, coconut in hand.  

The art world in Hong Kong is different because…

Of its recent rise to the status of an internationally viable art hub. As a result, the art world is much more scrappy, much more self-directed, and much less entitled than that of most other cities of its size.   

The best place for a private view in Hong Kong is…

Probably in a warehouse in Wong Chuk Hang.

Art fairs are important because…

They provide local artists with a view of the art being made in the rest of the world, and the rest of the world with a view of the art that's being made here. 

Living here makes me feel…

Manic—but in a good way. 

I last cooked for…

My fiancée and our two pet rabbits.
