Promoting Hong Kong Comics by Decorating Comix Home Base: Comix New Decor - Spring


Date & Time:
23/06/2017 - 22/06/2018  From 10:00 am to 8:00 pm


The Hong Kong Comics and Animation Federation, in collaboration with the Hong Kong Arts Centre, Comix Home Base and Wan Chai District Council, organize the “Promoting Hong Kong Comics by Decorating Comix Home Base”, under the sponsorship of Create Hong Kong (CreateHK) of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.
 
It is a one year programme that invites the trade to nominate local animation and comics (Ani-Com) artists to contribute their artworks for decorating the Comix Home Base. The programme is carried out in four phases, with the "Comix New Decor – Spring” as the fourth, also the last phase.
 
​In this phase, a giant banner under the theme of "Wuxia", which is one of the most representative themes of local comics, is hung up at the Comix Home Base courtyard to pay tribute to Wuxia comics. Local comics master, James Khoo Fuk-lung, was invited to design and paint the giant banner with his signature drawing style to present 15 local classical Wuxia characters in a fun and cute way.
 
In addition, 4-Panel Comics are installed at different parts of Comix Home Base, same as the previous phases, but this time under the theme of "Wuxia 4-Panel Comics". It is a new attempt, considering that it is very rarely for Wuxia comics to be presented in the format of 4-panel comics.  Different generations of local comics artists, namely Dr Tony Wong Yuk-long, James Khoo Fuk-lung , Jacky Kwong, Felix Lp, Jerry CHO and Ho Chi Man (in no particular order) are invited to reinterpret this theme by using their own styles in this phase’s 4-Panel Comics.
 
​The Comic Art Gallery, another highlight of the project, adopts a new theme of "Fantasy" in the fourth phase too. Comics collections themed on Fantasy by James Khoo Fuk-lung , Li Chi-tat, Cheng Kin-wo, Beavis yu, Neko Kreuz, Leung Wai Ka, Billy Ma, Mak Siu Fung , Sam Tse, Kong Bun Keung and Kai (in no particular order) are exhibited at the Comic Art Gallery, with some of them being the artists’ original manuscripts.
