Hong Kong Windows

Watercolor and pen on paper

75 x 50 cm


A project from DRAW 101 [Drawing II: Composition and Media]  class at SCAD. We had to draw a location that reflects Hong Kong culture. Having to live in Sham Shui Po, the poorest district in Hong Kong, I got to witness the old buildings this city has to offer as I walk to class every day. I'm fascinated with the fact that each window belongs to different residents and thus tells a completely different story of their lives. I tried to capture that chaotic-yet-organized atmosphere through the grungy building of Hong Kong.
