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.
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.
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.’
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.
