The Map of A Myth II

Using calligraphic brushstrokes and muted color tones, I intend to bring in some traits of Chinese art. Assembling elements of art in the East and West is to signify the unique history of Hong Kong as a former colony. I’ve applied spontaneous patterns over portions of the local streets to represent the puzzling promises for the city’s future.

Reference: Satellite map of Kowloon, where 40% of the Hong Kong population resides.
