Art Basel Sales: Fair Offers Shopping Spree for the Rich
A massive shopping spree for art is underway in Hong Kong.

The annual Art Basel Hong Kong fair opened its doors to an invite-only VIP list on Wednesday, and wealthy collectors splurged quickly as they perused the booths of 245 galleries at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Adrian Cheng, executive director of property developers New World Development Company, said he bought 15 art works on the first day alone. The voracious 34-year-old collector is the grandson of Hong Kong jewelry and real-estate tycoon Cheng Yu-tung.

Among Mr. Cheng's purchases were a $60,000 sculpture by Adrian Villar Rojas from Marian Goodman gallery and a $180,000 work by Carol Bove from David Zwirner. He also bought works by Toy Ziegler and Valerie Snobeck from Simon Lee gallery.

Galleries reported strong sales on day one. According to a release from the fair's organizers, Soka Art from Taipei sold a landscape called 'Red' by Chinese contemporary oil painter Hong Ling for $600,000.

New York gallery Hauser & Wirth sold three paintings by Chinese artist Zhang Enli to different private collectors from mainland China, the gallery said. Prices for the works ranged from $180,000 to $240,000.

Western works are also proving popular at the fair. At White Cube gallery, an Antony Gormley cast-iron sculpture titled 'Rest II' was sold. It had an asking price of almost $420,000. The gallery said it had 'exceptionally strong sales' from Asian collectors.

Among the seven works Lisson Gallery sold on the first day were two works by Jason Martin and three pieces by Anish Kapoor. Prices for the works ranged from $67,000 to US$167,000.

Art Basel Hong Kong continues today and ends on Sunday.
