Tai O, 2005. Print on Cotton Artist Textured 310 gsm paper limited by a certificate of authenticity. The certificate of authenticity is signed by the artist.
The artwork was developed from the film more than 10 years ago. We did a lot of procedures including handcraft and AI enhancement to make this paint-like Art come true, from a low-resolution photo taken 15 years ago, and make it live again on Cotton Artist Textured paper. It is not perfect, but the imperfection made it Art.
Story of Artwork:
This artwork was taken with my Nikon FM2 Camera in 2005. I was born in Hong Kong and I really love this tiny international city from my heart. You can find the traditional and modern features in this place. HK is a place with mixed Eastern and Western cultures, a perfect place to do business and everyone can find their desired lifestyle here. Apart from the developed city lifestyle, there is a totally different part of rhythm on the island. I remember the photo was taken in the early morning staying in my bro grandma’s home, which is located in Tai O. Tai O is a fishing town, looking at the photo I could smell the atmosphere of traditional salted fish and shrimp paste sold at storefronts.
I really love such peaceful scenery and love to capture it as my private memories collection. Hope that my Artwork in TinyHongKong Collection reminds people or collectors of the beauty of this tiny beautiful island.
That's the story of this artwork.
