‘Work in Progress’, Hong Kong

Last week we (Rone, Meggs & Beastman) travelled to Hong Kong to take part in the ‘Work in Progress’ art project in Taikoo Place, Island East, HK.

Hitting the ground running the three of us had 48 hours to complete a large wall mural/installation each, dine in HK style, drink beers and pose for photos in the lead up to Friday night’s launch party – which attracted more than 1,400 people, a lot of vodka drinking and some impromptu crowd bombing/building trashing! Thanks to May, Lauren, Swire, Cyrcle, Spencer, Coco, Peter, all the artists, all the Dougs & all the local crew who made this whirlwind, sensory overload trip a lot of fun!
