Aside from the late Catalan painter known for his surrealist works, other highlights include works from famed Chinese contemporary artist Feng Zhengjie’s latest series and eye-catching 3D animations from digital artist Miao Xiaochun, who will unveil his latest project ‘Neo-Cubism Projection’ during the festival.
