"The World of Tintin" exhibition, "Gold Painted Signs" of HK old shops & gui 00:21:37 2017-12-13
Created by Belgian cartoonist, Georges Remi, more commonly known as Hergé, the boy adventurer Tintin is one of Europe’s most popular comic book characters.
The 24 albums of his adventures around the world have been published in more than a hundred languages. And more than 230 million copies have been sold worldwide.
From now until Boxing Day, “The World of Tintin” at Artistree showcases eight of those 24 albums.

You’ve probably noticed that The Works often features photography or other art that highlights Hong Kong’s own past. Just last week, we saw Hong Kong in the 1960s and 1970s through the black and white prints of photographer Yau Leung. This week, we’re heading into some of Hong Kong’s old shops. Photojournalist Simon Go has been photographing 300 of them since 2004, but already, in that relatively short time, many of the establishments he has captured have gone for good. At f22 Foto Space, “Gold Painted Signs” is showing 60 of his images.

Hong Kong-based guitarist and composer Jason Kui is well-known for his collaboration with some of the singers in the local Cantopop scene. His influences include guitarists such as Eddie Van Halen, John Petrucci and Andy Timmons. Jason’s own debut album, “Absence of Words” includes metal, hard rock, funk and ballads.
