I was walking in a stove everyday as if I’m the half-finished pasta being heated up in a big microwave oven called Hong Kong. One Saturday I was walking along PoHo on my way to an art gallery in Sai Ying Pun (of which I wrote an review of their exhibition afterwards), and this is what I found. The poor garbage spoke to my heart and reflected exactly what I was thinking, “I’m melting, I’m melting, I’m melting”.
In fact, though I knew it’s just some grafitti sprays left by those unconsiderate street artists, I somehow admired this little piece of street art.
And yes, if you walk around Aberdeen Street, you can find even more graffitis.
I hope you don’t find it weird that I relate the hot weather to street art… Art is everywhere and it can happen anytime. Hong Kong might be called a “cultural desert” (they mean “art desert” actually, there are full of cultures in Hong Kong), but there are little things that we can find just on the streets.
If I tell people that I’m going to art exhibitions, not everyone would be keen to ask for details because not everyone has the mindset to open up to more innovative ideas and creativity. I hope to explore more of these photographs with you all in the coming articles.
Ciao for now, I’m still melting.
