Street calligrapher Tsang Cho-choi, whose words have been reprinted by fashion and furniture fabrics designers, will exhibit his works at the Arts Centre next month. Tsang, 76, known as the 'emperor of Kowloon', said his hard-to-understand and broken sentences were 'writs' against the Hong Kong Government which he said snatched lands belonging to his clan. He said his clan existed for more than 2,660 years mainly around East Kowloon, where a number of public estates had been built. Tsang, who had only two years' schooling, writes mainly the names of his ancestors and living relatives, places in East Kowloon and the character meaning 'to inhabit'. His penmanship has inspired film makers, photographers, musicians and fabric designers. Asked why he thought the lands belonged to his clan, Tsang said: 'My ancestors were buried there. The Government would not compensate according to land value. 'The Housing Authority is a bully. They would only give you two rooms back,' he said. Tsang said the clan's 13 ancestral graves had all been dug up. 'Two of them were transferred to a public cemetery. The rest simply disappeared,' he said. A book featuring Tsang's career as a street artist will be produced to generate income for him. He lives alone in Kwun Tong on a $2,000 monthly social security payment.
