1. Discovery Bay Presents “Invaders” Art Exhibition by Ceet Fouad   And Ceet’s Live Mural Performance on 10 May
From 9 May till 6 June, Compton Art Gallery will be hosting the “Invaders” Exhibition, showcasing Ceet’s paintings, sculptures and graffiti artworks. In addition to bringing more artistry elements to the picturesque and multi-cultural Discovery Bay, a platform to support art development in Discovery Bay is also created. This world-renowned French graffiti artist has long been highly regarded in the international art scene and his works have been exhibited in numerous international graffiti and street arts shows. Ceet has also been an art ambassador to global brands such as Adidas, Airbus, Ecko, Loewe and Prada.
The humanised chickens created by Ceet depict so much emotions and personalities. Through various approaches, he criticises the society for shaping people to go adrift and stay obscure and dull. He experiments with a variety of mediums; murals, sculptures, graphic design and canvases, through which he bares his hopes, failures and opinions to his audience. Apart from the exhibition at Compton Art Gallery, Ceet will also perform live mural painting on 10 May at D’Deck. No graffiti fanatics should miss that!

2. Giant Easter Egg Upcycled to Limited-Edition Designer Products by Handcrafters
Earlier in April, Ceet had designed a chicken-themed 15-metre tall inflatable Easter Egg for Discovery Bay. The giant egg, a popular photo backdrop for many families during Easter, had become one of the hottest topics in town. After the giant egg was dismantled, a few handcrafters were invited to ride on this environmentally friendly idea by upcycling the materials into different kinds of designer products, such as tote bag, pencil bag, etc, for charity sale at DB Sunday Market on 10 May. Hong Kong Resort Company Limited will donate the exact amount of the selling prices to The Neighbourhood Advice-Action Council (NAAC) for every product sold. Each product is truly unique! Please do come and support the environment and our community!

About Ceet Fouad
Always the entertainer, Ceet can often be found telling an animated tale to a crowd of wide-eyed listeners. The ending is always the same as the audience doubles over in laughter, and a big grin emerges from the face of the world’s leading graffiti and contemporary artist, Ceet Fouad. Ceet’s voracious appetite for life began in Toulouse, France, where he was born 40 years ago to parents of North African origin. He spent his early years painting graffiti on any and all inanimate surfaces in his home town with his street crew.
His graffiti style reflects his energetic personality and approach to life. Largely based on interplay of colors and wild style lettering, the finished product is controlled and mechanically executed, yet sophisticated in the design style and finish. Ceet is not one to sugar coat the truth, and his work often reveals a brutal honesty about experiences from his own life. He has experimented with a variety of mediums; murals, sculptures, graphic design and canvases, through which he exposes his hopes, failures and opinions with his audience.
Since the mid-80s, he has focused on his canvas work through a mixed use of acrylic, oil and spray paint. Striving for perfection, Ceet pays meticulous attention to each canvas detail and uses every inch of space to reveal his expressions on life. The quality of his creations have not gone unnoticed, as invitations from galleries, contemporary art shows and lifestyle brands have confirmed his place on the international stage of contemporary artists to watch and follow. In 2003, Ceet left France to share his talents and passion for contemporary art with China. Since 2003, he’s been very active in China with diverse exhibitions, events and artistic performances. Advertising companies and lifestyle brands also call on his talent and has been an art ambassador to global brands such as Adidas, Airbus, Ecko, Loewe and Prada.
