Teddy bears bring a new twist to some classic Western art paintings in the “Art in MTR” exhibition entitled “Masterpiece + Teddy”. Visitors can enjoy 12 extraordinary artworks in which retired teacher Ms Magdalene Tam uses her unique style to fuse teddy bears into famous masterpieces.
“I think there is a story behind every famous painting and I am also fascinated with adorable teddy bears, so the thought of integrating the teddy bears into the paintings came into my mind,” said Ms Tam, who has devoted her time since her retirement to art creation. “Although I encountered a lot of difficulties in this project, with encouragement from my family and friends, I made every endeavour to finish the works. I hope passengers will be happy to enjoy revisiting these masterpieces through my creations and experience the pleasure of art from a different perspective,” she added.
