Comixtream in the City – Wan Chai


Date & Time:
01/11/2017 - 31/07/2018


Wan Chai is the cradle of Hong Kong’s animation and comics (ani-com) industry, with many local ani-com artists started their career here. It is also the home of Hong Kong’s first art community featuring ani-com – Comix Home Base.

This autumn, Hong Kong Arts Centre and Comix Home Base present Comixtream in the City – Wan Chai, a project that transforms the district’s public spaces into exciting ani-com encounters. Eight local veteran and upcoming ani-com artists collaborate to bring comics art to four distinctive locations, forming a comics cluster that celebrates Wan Chai’s past, present and imagines its future, also promoting Wan Chai as an ani-com landmark in Hong Kong.

Surrounding the now revitalised heritage Comix Home Base are five lampposts decorated by local designer and illustrator Bo Law, whose work personify the tranquil neighbourhood of Sun, Moon and Star Streets as an old angler overlooking Wan Chai’s vibrant streets and waterfront. North to them, comics artists Jerry Cho, Mandycat and Bonnie Pang have transformed Southorn Playground into a comic showcase of Wan Chai’s street scenes and everyday life.

Along Gloucester Road, comics artist Justin Wong has worked together with Dolly Lee to bring the area’s diverse cityscape – from the historical tramway and traditional teahouses to the modern architecture such as Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts and the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre – to the East entrance of the Revenue Tower. Six distinctive scenes of Wan Chai, connected by the tramway, are featured above the entrance to show the change of landscape from Wan Chai South to Wan Chai North.

On an exterior wall outside the building of Hong Kong Arts Centre, local comics veterans Alice Mak and Keung Chi Kit envision a green “Wan Chai Hill” in their collaborative work. Their famous comics characters, McDull and Samba, are having a cheerful stroll on the Hill.

Comixtream in the City – Wan Chai, not only serves as a public platform for local comics artists to gain exposure to local and international audience, but also acts as a unique community and outreach project. A series of workshops will be held to engage diverse communities and strengthen the exchanges among ani-com artists, different social groups and the general public, raising awareness of public art and bringing comics into the city’s daily lives.

Locations of public artwork:
1. Comix Home Base (5 neighbouring lampposts)
2. Southorn Playground (interior and exterior walls of the main entrance at Hennessy Road and an interior wall of the public stand)
3. Revenue Tower (East entrance on the Ground Floor)
4. Hong Kong Arts Centre (exterior wall facing Gloucester Road)
