About the ARTWORK/ MURAL

Artist: UUendy Lau
Medium: Wall
Artwork: Have A Nice Day
Size: 5 x 2.5 m
Materials: Paint

Inspiration: The notion started with a fish store in the Wan Chai Wet Market which the artist walked by the other day. She found that the fish kept in the water tank were so packed in a way that they looked really surreal. This somehow resembled the limited living space most people have in Hong Kong, the hometown of the artist. While trying to illustrate the absurdity in the daily happenings, she hopes the mural can lighten up our hectic life with a touch of humour.

Inside Story: Read every detail on the mural. Have a nice day! 🐟
