Kam Mak: From Tank To Palette

Starting last winter, Pearl river mart has supported artists by providing an artists in residency program with its second floor space as well as organizing exhibitions for the artists that celebrate the diversity of new york.

For its latest exhibition “From tank to palette”, artist Kam Mak showcased a series of his recent paintings which depict animals as food in a Chinese market. From roast chicken hanging in a store to numerous fish and frogs kept crowded in a small tank, the provocative paintings present Kam Mak’s personal exploration of his memories of food as a child growing up in Hong Kong and New York City’s Chinatown.
