Tokyo born artist, Kumiko Matsushima who lived in New York City for 6 years, in California, 2 years, and in Hong Kong, 11 years, now in Singapore, rediscovered how beautiful Hong Kong is and how unique its culture, tradition, and people’s lives are, when she lived in Wanchai area for two months from February to April in 2021. As a huge Hong Kong lover, Kumiko took advantage of her temporary stay there, took photos every day and posted one picture a day on FB, Instagram, and Twitter for 51 days. That is her series, “Hong Kong Colours,” which casts a spotlight on the beauty of Hong Kong in culture, tradition, and people’s lives, before they are lost.
Twenty two photos among them, a few mixed media artworks and 3D works will be shown in this exhibition, “Hello, Hong Kong Colours Plus.”
