Street Art and Graffiti Takeover Hong Kong With “HK Walls”
Street art and graffiti are taking over the walls in Sheung Wan
Words by Kay Dubbz
The city of Hong Kong is known for its bustling streets, towering buildings, and a variety of different cultures. Now, street art and graffiti culture can be added to that list. The art forms are officially making their mark on the walls of Sheung Wan thanks to a first-of-its-kind project, HK Walls. The street art event series, created by Jason Dembski and Stan Wu, has been a success.
Jason and Stan organized local and artists from abroad to participate event, and the outcome has given the city the superior urban exterior feel that other great cities of the world have been executing for years. With an off the hook block party to close the affair, residents and visitors alike have done nothing but give tremendous props to the event, its art, and its participants, advocating that there should be more works done. HK Walls is an ongoing project and will expand, as street art and graffiti culture in Hong Kong continues to grow rapidly.
HKWalls was organized by HKStreetArt.com and supported by Montana Colors, Wrung, Keypad, BOOM Magazine, Little Burro, Young Master Ales, and Nice Pops.
