Tales of “Kowloon King”

Presented by Lucie Chang Fine Arts, Tales of “Kowloon King” is a solo exhibition by the man himself, artist Tsang Tsou Choi.

Tsang’s calligraphy is graffiti-style, using Chinese traditional brush and ink to paint onto public objects. Primarily a political indictment of the colonial system, Tsang also features his ancestors and family members. A real pop-culture legend.

HK Urban Canvas 2022

While the special exhibition is over, HK Urban Canvas’ beautiful shopfront shutter artworks (83 in total, in nine districts!) were created to stay up and be showcased, well, forever. This year, the project extended to 21 local shops across three history-steeped regions: Jordan and its large and long-established Nepali community; Shau Kei Wan and the moored fishermen who settled onshore; and Quarry Bay, looking back at the early industrial workers who put down roots around the TaiKoo company dormitories.
