This summer, five of Macau and Hong Kong’s well-known contemporary artists came together for a period of shared inspiration under the roof of Galaxy Macau Integrated Resort (hereinafter Galaxy Macau).
Working with the theme of “Summer Love”, the five artists painted individual creations across a live format, as well as later conjoining their creativity on an extensive 50-meter mural—an amalgamation of 10-meter murals painted by each of the five artists.
Who attended the GalaxyArt
On the afternoon of May 18, at art space GalaxyArt in Galaxy Promenade, “Artists-in-Residence: Summer Love – Live Mural Painting and Exhibition” was officially launched.

Mr. Kevin Kelley, Chief Operating Officer – Macau of Galaxy Entertainment Group, and Mr. Raymond Yap, Senior Director of Integrated Resort Services of Galaxy Entertainment Group were in attendance to celebrate the exhibition’s opening.

“We believe that Macau’s new ‘Tourism + Art’ concept is sure to attract visitors from around the globe to come and experience the unique charms of Macau.”

Five talented artists from Macau and Hong Kong spent six weeks at GalaxyArt, delighting art lovers who were given a live window into their creative journey.
Through each artist’s brushstrokes, summer themes of flowers, animals, the ocean and the starry sky were subtly transformed into a combination of lines, color blocks, graphics, and text as each artist presented his or her personal interpretation on the theme of “Summer Love.”
As part of “Artists-in-Residence: Summer Love – Live Mural Painting and Exhibition,” the exhibition of the murals will run till June 30 and is free to the public. Please check the official website of Galaxy Macau https://www.galaxymacau.com to learn more.
