阿包: 當牆壁成爲畫布 | WHEN WALLS BECAME CANVAS

阿包,是一名本地塗鴉藝術家,以自己獨特的色彩風格繪出日常的場景,你未必認識她,但你一定在香港街頭看過她的作品。

Bao, is a local graffiti artist who paints everyday scenes with her unique style. You may not know her, but you must have seen her work on the streets of Hong Kong.

阿包曾毅然辭去設計工作,到澳洲工作假期並在歐洲逗留數月,兩年間以「賣藝」形式維生,結識到畫塗鴉藝術的澳洲朋友, 成為了她開始畫塗鴉藝術的契機。

Bao had once resolutely quitted her design job, went to Australia for a working holiday and stayed in Europe for several months. During the two years, she made a living by “busking”. For once she got to know an Australian friend who painted graffiti art, which has become the opportunity for her to start painting graffiti art.

說到街頭藝術與其他類型藝術最大分別,就是在於你在任何地方都有機會看見,這種特質令塗鴉藝術家和讀者之間的關係好像更加親密,多了一點交流的機會。她說:「我喜歡這一點令我多了機會與陌生人有交流,他們看見你畫畫又會感到快樂,甚至會買特意買東西來慰勞你。」。

In terms of street art and other types of art, the biggest difference is that you can see street art anywhere. This trait of street art has fostered the relationship between graffiti artists and readers, to be more intimate and more opportunities for communication to be created. She said: ‘I love the fact that it gives me the opportunity to communicate with strangers. They will be happy to see you painting, and they will even buy things to show you their gratitude.’ 

她提到希望香港可以為街頭藝術家提供更多資源,例如練習的場所,以幫助藝術發展,特別是讓更多年輕人加入。她亦表示若自己的體力能夠負擔,希望十年仍然正在堅持做街頭藝術,除此之外,嘗試以不同媒介創作亦是她的目標之一。

She mentioned that she hoped Hong Kong could provide more resources for street artists, such as places to practice. The aim is to encourage street art development in Hong Kong, especially to get more young people involved. She also expressed the hope that if she can afford it physically, she will continue to do street art in the next decade. In addition, trying to create in different media is also one of her goals.

阿包亦參與了於近日舉行的《看不見的牆  Invisible Walls》 跨藝術媒界展覽,與其他四位有不同創作風格的藝術家攜手合作,嘗試打破藝術家之間的牆壁,讓藝術突破新的可能性, 詳情可瀏覽以下網址:https://bit.ly/3wBKOwc
