Art Basel is always the place to see and be seen in the art world and that experience expanded to the newest frontier of the global art market when the first annual Art Basel Hong Kong opened there last week. Focused in the single largest growth market for the art world, Basel HK featured a better mix of Western and Eastern artists  than normal fairs with Asian artists like Takashi Murakami, Yoshitomo Nara, and Yayoi Kusama maintaining a large presence alongside the big money Western artists like Warhol, Basquiat, Ruscha, Prince, and Koons, etc. Sales were brisk to say the least, but less crazed and aggressive than the US & European fairs. In Hong Kong, apparently, buyers take their time and actually consider what they're buying (read a great NYTimes recap of the fair here). Luckily, the Supertouch crew was onsite to capture a glimpse of some of the best in show. Have a look:
