“If I Had a Dream” an Exhibition By Madsaki

Hello everyone, it’s me Famo or Jake or whatever the hell you know me by. Anyways,  I’m back… But not really. I find myself here today writing about the Kaikai Kiki artist, MadSaki. If you all are not familiar with who MadSaki is, I definitely recommend that you either check out his artwork on his Instagram (@madsaki) or you can check out my previous article on him here —-> https://myartisrealmagazine.com/madsaki/ <—-. Well let’s move forward now, I want to get this done quickly since I already ran out of my iced coffee and I feel like my mind is on fast forward at the moment. 

          Right now at Perrotin Hong Kong until August 17th, you can view MadSaki’s solo exhibition “If I Had a Dream”. Sadly, I won’t be able to make it to this amazing exhibition, mainly because I’m broke AF and the show is literally on the other side of the world. But, I can tell you that “If I Had a Dream” is his strongest and most powerful exhibition yet. Why is it going to be his strongest exhibition yet? One word, or name, to be honest, Warhol. Let’s be honest, anything that even resembles Warhol’s work will make people and collectors drop some heavy damn cash. I’m not going to lie, I’ve been out of the art scene for a couple of months so I really had no clue what to expect, and when I was given this assignment earlier today and was sent the links to some other articles on this exhibition, I fell in fucking love. MadSaki for a lot of his current exhibition, recreated works by Andy Warhol in his own raw style. Recreated Brillo boxes sprawled out neatly on the floor, laying in front of a infamous Warhol x Basquiat painting made by MadSaki himself, along with other recreations of Warhol’s and famous movie scenes all created in his unique, straightforward style. 

          One of my personal favorites in this show is a scene from the movie ‘Kung Fu Hustle’, in which he displayed the kick-ass Landlady from the movie smoking a cigarette (something she is known for in the film). Viewing it takes me back to my days as a teenager, where I literally watched that movie every day for like a month. And to be honest, a lot of this exhibition is filled with pieces that will make you have a major throwback of nostalgia, that’s another reason it is going to be a power hit for Perrotin Hong Kong. Any work, whether it’s art, design, or this shitty article, if it can make you feel any sense of emotion, then it is highly successful in itself, whether the emotion is positive or not. 

          So, if you happen to find yourself in Hong Kong, or you have the money to get there, I would highly recommend doing yourself a favor and getting your ass over there. Also if you need company to “If I Had a Dream” and can pay for me, just ask me if I want to tag along! Chances are, I’d say yes. After all, if I had a Dream, it would probably consist of me being able to view MadSakis new exhibition at Perrotin Hong Kong. Stay safe fellow readers, drink plenty of water and buy plenty of art.
