AMTD Digital Inc. (“AMTD Digital”) (NYSE: HKD), together with AMTD IDEA Group (NYSE: AMTD; SGX: HKB) (“AMTD IDEA”) and AMTD Group Inc. (“AMTD Group”), through AMTD World Media and Entertainment Group (“AMTD WME”), are thrilled to announce that ENVISEAM, in partnership with L’Officiel Art and AMTD IDEA, successfully hosted an exclusive VIP event in celebration for the collaboration between Christie’s and Jay Chou on this Autumn’s Post- Millennium Evening Sale.
Jay Chou, often referred to as the “King of Mandopop,” is a multitalented Taiwanese artist known worldwide for his prowess as a singer-songwriter, pianist, music and film producer, actor, director, and art collector. His latest album, Greatest Works of Art, was an internationally bestselling album in 2022—the title track’s music video garnered over 140 million views on Weibo in just one day, and the album has since accumulated more than 1 billion views across various platforms.
ENVISEAM, a pioneering force in the intersection of fine art and entertainment, a portfolio company of AMTD WME, is excited to bring and host a party like no other to toast to the successful collaboration between Christie’s and Jay Chou on this Autumn’s Post-Millennium Evening Sale. Meticulously handpicked by Jay Chou and Christie’s Hong Kong, this thematic auction featured a selection of extraordinary and pioneering works created after the millennium by talented avantgarde artists.
At the heart of this anticipated evening lies a vision to curate a space where Key Opinion Leaders, Movers & Shakers, and the Next-Gen Immense Wealth converge to experience the sophisticated allure of the world of fine art and entertainment. This exclusive cocktail celebration becomes a nexus where sophistication converges with creativity, offering attendees an experience that encapsulates the blending of fine art, entertainment, and fashion. It is a platform where the trendsetter from these industries intersect, fostering interactions and shaping a cultural narrative that redefines exclusivity, creativity, and refinement amidst an ambiance of playful glamor.
Partnering with L’Officiel Art, a globally renowned media powerhouse in the art and culture scene, and AMTD IDEA, a Hong Kong born global conglomerate and an active super-connector connecting the worlds between East and the West, ENVISEAM ensures a classy and artsy evening that highlights the interweaving of high fashion and the arts. Together, the partnership promises to offer an extraordinary experience that pushes the boundaries of the fine art, entertainment, and fashion worlds, injecting new vitality and dynamism into cultural elevation.
Dr. Calvin Choi, Global Chairman of AMTD Group, L’Officiel, and The Art Newspaper, commented: “This is the second time we collaborate with Jay Chou, and ENVISEAM, after L’OFFICIEL Art and AMTD IDEA jointly presented the ‘Art Colure with Artistes Curated by Jay Chou’ exhibition last year in Singapore. Through our strategic investment into ENVISEAM and a long-term partnership, we are combining our various platforms and mediums across art, fashion, and entertainment areas to connecting cultures and facilitating appreciation towards humanity values.”
Jazz Li, Founder and CEO of ENVISEAM, remarked: “In this era, we’re witnessing a unique convergence of art, entertainment, and fashion, heralding a future rich in cultural depth. This is more than a trend; it’s a post-internet, post-AI Renaissance where creativity and technology intertwine to redefine our cultural landscape.”
The event, slated to be an unforgettable night of sophistication and artistic finesse, is poised to redefine boundaries, and set new precedents in the movement of cultural transcendence.
