ART EXHIBITION: CURIOUS (12/13 - 2/7)
Artist: Gary Hou
Curator: WforWee Inc.
Organizer: Bar Pa Tea
As a creative initiative to bridge food and art, Bar Pa Tea collaborated with New York based artist and designer, Gary Hou to produce a collection celebrating their first winter in SoHo. Inspired by Bar Pa Tea’s multifaceted flavors, Hou found his medium in silver mirrored acrylic as a means to reflect the curiosity of Bar Pa Tea's reimagined bubble tea culture. The mirrored pieces are deliberately interactive, capturing within the artwork that beloved moment in which a guest can indulge their cozy winter pastime of a good cup of tea.
