Look to these affordable Hong Kong-themed wall art pieces and prints to inject a little personality into your space while still sticking to budget.
Show off your love for the city with some Hong Kong-themed art prints and photography! The reality for many of us living here is that we can only afford to rent our living space — which means painting walls (if that!) and adorning the room with smaller personal touches like plants and candles seems as far as we can go in terms of decorating. So we’re looking for wall art, prints and decorative pieces to display on shelves and bookcases. From cityscape photography to intricate illustrations, custom prints and more, here are the best artists and studios to buy affordable Hong Kong wall art.

Where To Buy Hong Kong Wall Art & Prints
Louise Hill Design
There’s nothing that can liven up a dull space quite like one of Louise Hill’s designs. Drawing inspiration from this bustling city we call home, each piece is packed to the edges with vivid imagery from around Hong Kong. Louise creates her dynamic, multilayered prints using a range of photographic, digital, illustrated and hand-finished techniques, resulting in a true feast for the eyes. We love her kaleidoscopic creations just as much as her monochromatic designs! Available in a range of sizes, the made-to-order prints are printed using gallery-standard Giclée inks on either cotton canvas or German etching paper.
Price: From $2,550 (unframed); from $3,050 (framed)
