MAXX HEADROOM by Michael Lau, Woaw Gallery x Michael Lau
"Woaw Gallery is pleased to present MAXX HEADROOM from September 29 to October 23, 2021 at its Central gallery space. A collaboration with renowned Hong Kong-based artist Michael Lau, also known as the “Godfather of Designer Toy”, the solo exhibition will feature a series of original new paintings and sculptures from the artist’s signature Gardener Series, showcasing an important part of the artist’s career over the last three decades"

"Delving into Maxx, the hero character of Lau’s original 1999 Gardener series, MAXX HEADROOM explores the concept of youth, passion and perseverance. Through a selection of original and new works, the exhibition reflects the artist’s own journey through the character of Maxx as an epitome of the artist himself, a strong headed youth who would give all for his passion. From the first Gardener logo, sketches, comics, and album cover made in 1998, to remnants of its pivotal moments, as well as the artist’s recent Maxx paintings and sculptures, audiences are invited to enter the evolving journey of Gardener and the artists’ unwavering psyche."

I'll always remember MAXX as one of the figures from his Gardener Series vinyl figures released from waaaaay back that I'd never been able to add to my collection, particularly when it was released together with a huge tome, making it out of my financial reach then. I had by then managed to collect both TATTOO and BRIAN Editions, but alas they are missing their buddy "MAXX"... :p
