Mural for Art at Government Buildings 2012-13 project. I was one of the six selected local artists to beautify government office buildings in Hong Kong through art displays. I was assigned to the office building in North Point. As a glutton, I usually visit North Point for its food, especially the tasty Min Nan style deep fried meat balls and fried meat buns in Chun Yeung Street. A sense of mystery is prevailing as I walk into the street full of shopkeepers speaking in Min Nan. I walk together with trams and crowds in the same street, children sitting alongside with their plastic stools doing their homework, neighbors always playing with them when they are passing by. Turning to Java Road, I see Spirit Book Store with its shop sign in the delicate Fang-Song style, still sitting quietly in the corner. Turning around to King’s Road, Sunbeam Theatre, Chinese Goods Centre and Metropole Department Store, the survivors from dissolving, are still here. I would like to draw them all.
