Dupuis, a French mural artist, is the co-founder of Tofu, an ambitious quarterly review of art, fashion and culture in Hong Kong, Asia and Europe. He landed in Hong Kong five years ago on a commission to paint the columns in the Conrad hotel lobby. Favourite book: Junichiro Tanizaki's autobiography, The Diary of an Old Fool. Despite Tanizaki's advanced age and associated ills, he leads an erotic life. I admire his philosophy of life and the carefree way he discusses it. Magazine: I have quite a few favourites. Cockroach, a quarterly magazine of local comic-strip art produced by Craig Au-Yeung; Nest, an American quarterly on interior design which is an alternative to the already boring Wallpaper; Purple, a French quarterly with quirky fashion photography; and BUG, an underground mag which documents the lifestyles, cultures and arts of Japan and Korea. Film: Touch of Evil by Orson Welles. This story about the corrupt goings-on at the Mexico-United States border is filmed in typical Wellesian style. The man was a genius! I also love Georges Franju's Eyes Without A Face, which is about a crazy doctor and his plastic surgery experiments. CD: I love music so it's extremely difficult to single out one from my huge collection. I can only say my current favourite is Jim O'Rourke's Eureka. It's a great pop album and a pleasant surprise from a musician who is considered avant garde. Car: The beautifully designed 1950s' Citroen DS. My dad used to own one. Place to take a guest in Hong Kong: First I'd take them to Felix in the Peninsula hotel and then we'd go across the road to Chungking Mansions. That way they'd get a taste of Hong Kong's own blend of cultural diversity. Way to keep fit: I hardly ever do exercise and I don't feel guilty about it. I don't believe riding a stationary bicycle is such a great achievement. Way to spend a Sunday: Lazing around at home to recover from last night's hangover. Holiday destination: I'd love to visit all the interesting places in Asia, particularly China. However, I get quite homesick for Paris so I usually return there whenever I have a holiday. Scent: I don't use cologne regularly, but I find Paco Rabanne's metallic packaging attractive. Cosmetic/beauty product: Since I discovered how the pollution here has been affecting my skin, I started using Nivea's exfoliating gel. Accessory: Sunglasses are the only things I carry around with me all the time. Hairdresser: I'm not fussed about hairdressers. I often end up in the salon next door to my office, just because it's convenient. Meal: Couscous - the national meal in Paris! I also love fish balls, especially the way my Jewish friends in Paris cook them. And, of course, tofu - I'm still exploring the many taste sensations of this dish. Restaurant: The Delhi Club in Chungking Mansions. Great food and a unique atmosphere. I also like the '60s style deco at the Choi Wu Cantonese Restaurant in Wan Chai. Alcoholic drink: Chablis, which reminds me of home. I used to live 20 kilometres from the village of Chablis in France. Shop: Any second-hand book or record store. There are plenty dotted around the back streets of Hong Kong. Check out the next issue of Tofu if you want the full list! Artist: Andy Warhol and Serge Gainsbourg, for breaking taboos in art and music and for being hip and cool. Designer: Andre Courrege, a French fashion designer who first made his mark in the '60s. He was innovative without having to resort to nostalgia. And Paco Rabanne for his famous metal mini skirts. Person: That's nobody's business but my own!
