Have A Nice Day

2019 | Mural & Live Performance | HKwalls 2019

PROJECT BACKGROUND

We were selected as one of the artists for HKwalls Festival 2019 to create a mural in the neighbourhood of Wan Chai, a local area infused with art and culture. A number of local and international creatives gathered in this vibrant district and worked on various architectural canvas at multiple locations, from walls and fences to truck and trams. The Festival was once again a huge success making (street/public) art accessible to all with the massive support from different partners including Vans, Hong Kong Design Centre, Design District Hong Kong and Eico Paint.

CREATIVE CONCEPT

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 where we walked by the other day. We 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 my home town Hong Kong. While trying to illustrate the absurdity in daily happenings, we hope 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! 🐟
