Street Art in Hong Kong

Yesterday a friend showed me around a part of Hong Kong that I have been in, but apparently have never truly seen.  Alleys and side streets were filled with art that had escaped my notice.  Here, I have just added the pure street art, as opposed to art associated with stores that I assumed have paid for the art.  Maybe I will include another post on that later.  My personal favorite is the multicolored face.  Enjoy!

  1. They’re all good but yes, that face is a cut above the rest – brilliant!

  2. I totally agree that okay is too overused, so kudos to the social commentary graffiti. Do artists do this art clandestinely or with the consent of the building owners?

    • There is actually festival organized by a nonprofit in which they find buildings willing to have their walls transformed and artists come from all over, so some of the major pieces are from that. But there was a tradition of street art long before the festival began. Some pieces definitely seem to have been done spontaneously by local artists, and I doubt they have permission.
