Key and Featured artists for Shanghai’s largest design, art and fashion fair have been selected. As expected DAFF goers on October 25-26 are in for a diverse range of colourful displays, interactivities and workshops whilst shopping the latest collections and designs by over 100 talented artisans.
The weekend event, in its seventh edition is sure to open your eyes to new possibilities and the artists will be helping to transform the giant industrial dome and outdoor arena into an immersive landscape that slips seamlessly between fantasy and reality, arousing your curiosity.
A few things to look out for!
Learn Chinese typography with Ailadi Cortelletti, and watch your chosen word or phrase come to life as she illustrates its meaning. Throughout the weekend, each piece will be joined together to create a continuously developing, large scale community artwork!
View the big, bright and beautiful pop up style painting by Stammy near the Fashion Show stage and live art workshops by artist, Kader. Question everything at Hu Renyi and Rebecca Bardes’ interactive installation, and take time to relax in the Zen Garden, inspired by the works of Nicklas Hultman.
The Orangeblowfish will also be back for more after his popular ‘Squatters’ graffiti installation at DAFF in June. We don’t want to give away all of our secrets just yet, just think BIG.
