DDHK - Project SSP_PPL
Street Art

[SSP_PPL] - Project SSP_PPL, stands for “Shum Shui Po People”, a district design project organized by Hong Kong Design Centre, reimagines Sham Shui Po as the living room for the city through the design installations in 4 public spaces and 10 designer furniture co- created with local shops. ⁣

Curated by the ultra talented (and a good friend) Michael Leung @michael_lcp from @studioaa_co, with the creative team consists of the lovely @eil_een and creative residence @wontonmeen_ owner @pacific_highway. I was tasked to complete a 20- metre- long mural with the young people from community organisation Hope of the City. Through the use of this mural, we aim to explore the habit of many local businesses in Shum Shui Po take on shop cats to help manage their customer relationships, while these furry store managers all have their own personalities, communities and life stories.⁣

The mural was completed within the duration of two weeks. I was first approached by Michael and Eileen back in the early 2020 before COVID19 had a major impact on the globe and through their hard work and persistence, the project finally came to fruition. Thank you for having me as one of the contributing artists, working with some good old friends and ultra talented artists in town such as @katolone@rexkoo@pakpuichung and many more has been a pleasure. ⁣

Even though the mural will not be in permanent display, I had a great time. Thank you :)⁣
