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. 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.
