【Re-understanding Hong Kong under the brush】
When you're overwhelmed by inspiration, what do you do to solve the problem? Make a cup of coffee? Read a book?
Or the illustrator described below, who may have a way to help you!
This time, we introduce illustrator Terence Tsai, who will lead you to walk through the 163 hills of Hong Kong through his illustration works on the theme of Hong Kong's mountains, and re-understand Hong Kong while watching.
In 2016, Terence was invited by a local brand to design a pattern for a T-shirt. At first, he could not write, but after a meal, he was in a daze and saw the Pineapple Mountain in Tuen Mun. Although he had the idea of painting all the peaks in Hong Kong, he was put on hold due to his busy work. Until recent years, the opportunities for hiking have increased, which made his idea of "painting mountains" come up again.
This exhibition has collected a total of 130 peaks in Hong Kong, adding interesting and smug ideas in the form of ink and wash, and swaying creativity on gold foil rice paper, turning the originally beautiful and solemn peaks into one interesting and figurative one after another. For example, the big mosquito mountain is painted as a human-shaped mosquito, and the grass mountain is painted as a human brain with grass, which completely breaks everyone's traditional stereotypes about mountains and ink.
When you can't find inspiration in the future, don't go out alone! You might as well learn Terence to go out, change your mood, absorb the power of natural mountains, take a forest bath, re-understand the unique beauty of Hong Kong, observe the scenery along the road, maybe Walking and walking, there will be inspiration to knock on the door!
