KWONG MAN CHUN
My paintings are inspired by the dissociate state of my memories and my imagination. When I was small, I thought the colourful street lights were the greatest images of Sham Shui Po. I searched for identities that came to Hong Kong from far away. I saw Yip Man in movies, I saw Ding Yan Yong in books, and I saw a Dai Pai Dong while waiting for a friend.I combined all of these images into the same pictures.They are held closely in my identity.There are always wanderers behind the prosperous city.
