Trouble in Hong Kong…

an outsider's perspective of hong kong

jacmila the artist

jacmila's art which now graces the soho walkway - this was before the completion of the mural

i got to know jacmila when she and a bunch of artists were assigned to paint the central escalator walkway. i walk past that stretch almost on a daily basis. day by day i saw the transformation of the entire walkway. witnessing its transforming was a beautiful experience and i was lucky enough to watch it unfold bit by bit.

being the busybody that i am, i cannot resist talking to people. it was also pure coincidence that jacmila sort of knows my husband and that was how i got to know jacmila.

my photo is not doing justice to her art

jacmila’s art is so beautiful. i grow up loving nature. my uncle took us for hiking trips, i love being in a rainforest which malaysia is well known for.  i love the rousing smell of the jungle especially during dawn and at dusk. jacmila’s art reminds me a lot of that.

i have a sneaky suspicion that the inspiration for jac's art is derived a lot from nature

i don’t think there is enough art in hong kong which is pretty peculiar because for a society to be this developed and not have a strong art community. it’s a shame. we need people like jac. we need to support people like them. it is not easy to be an artist in a city so driven by money.

sorry jac, i stole your picture from facebook

jac is having her second solo exhibition at the peak – it is at shop 13a, level 1 the peak galleria. it runs from today onwards the 1st of september till the 15th of september.

so cute and what a nice gift too

definitely jacmila's trademark

good luck jac. i so love your totes.
