Hong Kong: Vaford Gates

vaford1
Last week i was in HK working on a exciting new project, news of that coming soon.
While i was in town i was invited by the awesome ABOVE SECOND gallery and Elizabeth Wong of Vaford Group to be the inaugural artist in a new initiative The Vaford Gates, a project created to vitalize the arts district of Chai Wan, HK.

I do have to point out how much times have changed- it never used to be the fact that when painting shutters i would have a team of scaffold workers, chilled champagne on tap, fresh sushi and celebratory flower bouquets delivery to the wall….

Early this summer i had a new Installation go up in Newcastle city centre. Using an empty shop space as a light box the piece looks good in the day but really comes to life at night….
