hong kong: hong kong on steps

© pmq

launched last year as hong kong’s new hub of creativity, pmq is already home to a slew of nifty individuals and innovative businesses. the ongoing buzz going surrounding the project gains new momentum with the launch of hong kong on steps, an art project which sees a collection of paintings on 25 flights of stairs across pmq by a group of urban artists from hong kong, taiwan, south korea, japan and france. each individual artist or collective was commissioned to create a stair painting inspired by the vibrant and diverse landscape of the former british crown colony. the paintings all exemplify familiar features of local heritage, culture and environment, each through a different creative aesthetic and point of view and the project a one-of-a-kind artistic exploration of the city. coming from overseas? lucky you. upload your hong kong on steps photos to your personal social media platforms with the hashtag #pmqhk and show it to a pmq staff member to receive a free souvenir. mind you, the participating artists are bao ho, brainrental, candy bird, ceet, omni art, lee tae-ho and pokke104. location: pmq, 35 aberdeen street [central].
