Hong Kong à travers les oeuvres de Louise Hill

Taking her favourite elements of Hong Kong and piecing them together in eye-catching prints, British artist Louise Hill has captured the city’s multilayered quality.

Whenever she creates a new artwork, ex-Sai Kung resident Hill, 46, a long-time graphic designer, explores the city’s sights and takes pictures with her Nikon camera, looking for things from the grand to the mundane to add to a pastiche that will later be printed on canvas.

The Hong Kong skyline with a queue of planes overhead, Victoria Harbour, the trams, taxis, ferries, painted teacups, dim sum bamboo steamers and mahjong tables feature in her mise-en-scene. Even the city’s orange rubbish bins make an appearance in her street-scene print Hong Kong Taxi, which is among the works she sells across the world on her website.
