Artwork at the Sai Ying Pun MTR Station

The Island line was extended to the East at the end of 2014, with Sai Ying Pun station being the final one to be opened in March 2015 (here's a recap of the opening).

Hong Kong Artwork by Peter Yuill

Occasionally, I had seen some of Peter Yuill's artwork before. For instance, in The Cat Street Art Gallery (which I enjoy visiting). But usually I would only see one or two of his pictures (like the mural at 0.5 Japanese) and then forget about all him. However, I recently came across his Facebook page, and… Continue reading Hong Kong Artwork by Peter Yuill

Artist Ric Tse and his Legography

I had read on Young Post SCMP and Hong Kong Wrong about the artist Ric Tse before, but it was not until my visit to the Affordable Art Fair that I actually paid attention to his artwork.

Giant rubber duck in Hong Kong

I was contemplating whether or not to post about the rubber duck - everyone in Hong Kong has talked about it for days now. It's probably 'old' news already. But then, maybe not all my readers are from Hong Kong. So it could still be news to you. Victoria Harbor has a new attraction (at… Continue reading Giant rubber duck in Hong Kong

Hong Kong People Statue

In front of the Conrad Hotel in Admiralty is an interesting statue - it depicts Hong Kong people live in action. There are business people in suits, children with toys, tourists taking pictures, an elderly man with his bird in a bird cage and a number of different funny characters. It is very detailed and… Continue reading Hong Kong People Statue
