From UK to HK and back again

May 21st, 2011 | By | 4 Comments »

So I’m back from Hong Kong nursing about 130 mosquito bites, but luckily a lack of sunburn – there are some upsides! In between the usual tourist based things I managed to wander the streets in and around Midlevels for an hour or two with the aim of spotting a few pieces of street art. Here are a few of the photos that interested me for one reason or another. Enjoy…

East LDN x HK - Anti-Graffiti Network and Monkey getting up high

Xeme! and the Toasters risking it outside the American Embassy and Central Government Offices

D*Face outside Schoeni Gallery - It's amazing how long this piece has lasted untouched

Lovely grimey Pez

Beautifully aged paste up by Orsek

You have been invaded. Artist unknown.

King Kong in Hong Kong? By Meggs

One of many paste ups by Michael De Feo

One thing I love about street art is the interaction between an artist and the environment, re-thinking spaces and re-appropriating objects, to produce art in its rawest form. In 2009 I spotted these two fire hydrants, unfortunately they had both been buffed with a new coat of paint when I re-visited them but they were my favourite pieces in Hong Kong and were too good to leave out of this post.

"I only have eyes for you" - Outside Man Mo Temple

"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" - On the top of The Peak

    I think the monster from unknown artist is probably Meggs. I know he had a show over in HK last year I think.

    Cheers Logan, I thought it looked like his work but I wasn’t sure. Thanks for clearing that up!
