Growing up, my visits to Hong Kong as well as my parents’ description of Hong Kong culture reinforced my assumption that the former British colony was too money-driven to nurture any good art.

Joey Leung Ka-Yin (who happens to share a surname with my mom) is proving that notion wrong with his playful fusion of traditional and contemporary themes and styles. I can’t wait for my next trip there, when I can hopefully check out his work in person.
