Hong Kong thrives on its iconic juxtapositions of: East/West, old/new, traditional/modern, and city/jungle. The beauty of Hong Kong is the tall colorful buildings set between sea and mountains. They call this city the “New York of Asia,” but they also say “a New York minute is a Hong Kong second.”
Hong Kong is a culturally enriched emerging art + design scene. From heritage museums to street art collectives and experimental platforms, the artistic expressions of this city intersect tradition and modernity, breaking new grounds. It’s no wonder that the art world’s attention is turned to Hong Kong as a focal point in Asia.
