Christmas comes early in Hong Kong if you want a real tree, however environmentally unfriendly that desire might be, as they quickly sell out despite the fact they cost two or three times more than in the UK. Anyway this year I have gone for it and decided that slightly retro kitsch is the look for Christmas in Hang Hau.
My picture of the gigantic [fake] tree in Festival Walk is on the Guardian blog and also helps to capture the shopping imperative in this city.
Last Saturday at animal artist Sascha’s studio I sold the rest of the mugs and some tiles and tealight holders that were left over from Jockey Club Creative Arts CentreC [JCCAC] fair the previous weekend so I’m surprised my trolley is still so heavy! Anyway back to the studio tomorrow and down to work for the next job.
JCCAC fifth anniversary exhibition also opened on Friday and looks pretty good with some interesting work, my favourite is the Zen mopping circles. My work looks a bit small in the large space but gives me some ideas for new developents.
