HONOR Brings Beauty of Art and Technology to Life at HONOR Talents Global Design Competition Art Exhibition

International diplomats and artists gather to appreciate creative artwork from young talents around the world

[BEIJING, China, March 21, 2023] Global technology brand HONOR recently teamed up with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization Investment and Technology Promotion Office (Beijing, China) to host the HONOR Talents Global Design Awards Art Exhibition. Featuring over 50 outstanding artworks from young designers around the world, the exhibition explores the key themes of Discovery, Sustainability and Cultural Identity. Through the exhibition, young artists from the likes of France, Germany, the UK, Italy, China and Malaysia were delighted to be given such a large platform to exhibit their art to the world.

In attendance were Mr. Siddharth Chatterjee, the United Nations Resident Coordinator in China; Mr. Sanmugan Subramaniam, the Deputy Chief of Mission and Minister of the Embassy of Malaysia in China; Prof. Wu Yabin, the Head of UNIDO ITPO Beijing; and Xiao Hui Wang, a renowned crossover artist, who marveled at the young artists’ beautiful works while exploring the intersection between technology and art.

“Young people are the leaders of tomorrow,” said Mr. Siddharth Chatterjee, the UN Resident Coordinator in China. “Platforms such as today’s exhibition provide a valuable opportunity for youth to give voice to their aspirations whilst offering more effective solutions to the world’s challenges… As the UN in China, we will continue to advocate for youth development and empowerment to create the best possible conditions for the next generation to unlock and reach their full potential.”

“We are delighted that global leading companies like HONOR are actively collaborating with the United Nations agencies to actively contribute to a brighter future,” said Prof. Wu Yabin, the Head of UNIDO ITPO Beijing. “Many of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are integrated into the excellent artworks in this exhibition, and I believe HONOR has demonstrated a great example for us.”

"HONOR is a forward-looking brand, and HONOR Talents shares the same vision as my artistic pursuits in providing a better stage and more opportunities for young artists,” said Xiao Hui Wang a world-renowned crossover artist. “Young people are the future, and it is our responsibility to contribute to the future and humanity.”

Empowering Global Youth and Showcasing the Beauty of Human-centric Technology

HONOR is renowned for infusing art and technology with humanity. This year, in addition to the traditional graphic design categories, HONOR also introduced a new category focusing on interactive augmented reality (AR) art installations. In doing so, HONOR offered a more diverse and inclusive platform while looking towards the future of art, technology, and humanity.

From over 7,000 entries, over half of the competitors were students from 164 universities worldwide, who benefited from HONOR's youth empowerment platform. It was the first time for HONOR Talents to be launched in over 40 markets around the world. In Malaysia, HONOR Talents collaborated with five local universities and produced nearly 500 pieces of artwork, of which six of them have won global awards. These award-winning art pieces have been widely applied to HONOR's products and have received positive market feedback.
