Maison Hennessy is ushering in 2023 with the help of Chinese artist Yan Pei-Ming, who is honouring the Lunar New Year with a new artwork.La Grande Course, a painting by the artist, has been created to celebrate the entire zodiac in all its diversity.Renowned for his portraits of animals and famous personalities, Yan Pei-Ming honours the Year of the Rabbit with a monumental painting, measuring 6×3.5 metres, showing the animal within the extended family of the Chinese zodiac. The allegory is one of togetherness in diversity: across generations, geography and families — and despite differences — sharing culture is what connects us all.
“La Grande Course is a major piece of my oeuvre. It’s rather monumental, with animals in movement, and a colour – the colour of Cognac – that I’ve never used before,” Yan Pei-Ming says of his latest work. “I wanted to do something exceptional, something complicated, that I would be proud of.”
These limited-time menus and creations are available from 9 January to 5 February 2023 at MO BAR and Cherry Garden (5 Raffles Avenue, Singapore 039797).
