*The artwork was developed from the film more than 10 years ago. We did a lot of procedures including handcraft and AI enhancement to make this work comes true, from a low-resolution photo, and make it paint-liked texture. It’s fun to try and error many times in this experimental process. It may not be perfect, but the imperfection made it Art.
Story of the Artwork:
This Artwork was taken with FUJIFILM by my beloved Nikon FM2 camera. I was so crazy about photography when I was young and go to different places in this lovely tiny Hong Kong. To capture the surroundings, to feel the culture, to record the light and the shadow. I love this city, it was the most delightful thing in my heart.
In TinyHongKong Collection, you hardly see the classic scene of city life. Some people feel strange that the topics of my artwork are not usual and familiar, and even “useless” in the commercial world. But the “Useless” becomes the uniqueness and made it artistic in my art world.
HOPE is about how you believe you can change, and keep it up on what you believe. Because only you can define the purpose of your life.
