Street Art

From small beginnings

Dominic Chan Yun-wai is leaning back in his chair and eyeing his cat, a black and white rescue sitting on his work table. He says he's busy, rising rents are forcing him to move from his studio and office in Ngau Tau Kok to a new shared space a few streets over, but he seems relaxed.

Cool and collected

It's almost impossible to escape KAWS' work these days. Whether it's the artist's clothing label Original Fake, album covers for Kanye West, the collectable toys, a new watch series or, of course, his artwork, KAWS has a restless urge to convey his message in as many mediums as possible.

Graffiti is an art form that can help ex-offenders turn their lives around, participants at an art workshop learned yesterday.

'Bunees' egged on by graffiti artists

Ten children dressed as rabbits joined two internationally known graffiti artists yesterday, spraying brightly coloured paint around a Kwun Tong shopping mall.

But no one objected because it was part of festivities at the APM Mall, which has been decked out with 500 rabbit figures based on the cartoon character Bunee, to create an Easter theme.
