The Gallery by
The Gallery by SOIL is dedicated to presenting the art of lacquer from Asia.
It is probably the first gallery in Hong Kong which brings together lacquer masters and artists of diverse cultures, blending the traditional with the contemporary to showcase variety in the discipline.
Since 2012, SOIL has devoted most of our efforts and resources to the design and research of this art form.
Oriental lacquer art is almost a forgotten art form that originated from Asia. These gorgeous handmade pieces and the very techniques of making an item using natural lacquer is worth preserving. The texture and feel of lacquer objects while soft to the touch, is very hard-wearing, and although often delicate looking are not at all fragile. It is a chance to create a memorable spatial encounter with the art of lacquer. The well-crafted details with unusual material combinations offer an element of surprise in the different space.
The Gallery by SOIL works with designers, art consultants and private clients on commissions across a range of hand crafted creations, including lacquer sculpture, wall art and smaller decorative object. For more information on our artists and artisans and the pieces they can create, please visit our showroom at The Gallery by SOIL, Shop 102, 1/F, Barrack Block, Tai Kwun, 10 Hollywood Road, Central, Hong Kong.
