About the theme
Milton values classic artworks a lot, especially those of impressionism. “Classic” and “modern” are often antonymous on dictionaries, but in Milton’s eyes, they beget each other. By breathing contemporary elements into the masterpieces, new life and vibrancy are also added in. What if people were eating HK Cha Chaan during the last supper? Have you ever seen the Vitruvian Cat? Or the Girl with a Pearl Earring with makeup and filter? GINGER x Milton here presents the art of the dialogue between the past and the present – “Modern Classics”. We look forward to seeing you join in the artistry.
