Hong Kong is really a suck place for developing arts.
All people is just Money,money and money in their mind..who else is still care about our urban lifestyle? our traditional building? our original ideas?
You may ask why suddenly I will have this shout out. this is because I see this website:http://www.adfuntureworkshop.com/.
Eddi Yip- a Hong Kon people, who is the founder of adfunture. They just open a concept shop in Shanghai. They have many works of UK and US and also China artist, like D-Faces, Flyfortress, Seen, and SICE. China started the graffiti later than us, but they are getting better and better than us? why?what is the reason?
and also we can see Michael Lau Vinyl Creators shows he work there, but why not Hong Kong? Hong Kong should be your good place to show your products right?WHY THEY CHOOSE SHANGHAI BUT NOT HONG KONG?!
I asked him and he said "Hong Kong don't have a good sense of arts, especial graffiti/streetarts".
I asked Selph[ESP crew] , who is a graffiti artist in Hong Kong, lived in UK for 10 years before, he said "i have been here one year now and still do not feel a real sense of proudness, originality or community spirit
I really feel disappointed and blue abut that.
you can't find a good community to boost up or sharing with each others, you can't find a good place to demonstrate your works except you hav money to book the places, you can't find a good man who is willing to help you without giving them reasonable money, what you can find is just a high rental building with no happy face inside, a museum which is no people to walk inside and talk about it, a reclamation place which is no one know how to use.....
It times to think about the reason to stay in Hong Kong.
