Changjiang Weekly - - CULTURE - By Yang Xi­aoyu

Jiefang Park Art Mu­seum un­veiled its ex­hi­bi­tion "Draw­ing Hong Kong with Chi­nese Char­ac­ters" on Au­gust 29. The ex­hi­bi­tion dis­plays 96 pieces of work co-cre­ated by stu­dents from the Schoolof Arts and De­sign of Wuhan Tech­nol­ogy and Busi­ness Univer­sity, Hong Kong De­sign In­sti­tute, and the Schoolof Visu­alArts of Hong Kong Bap­tist Univer­sity.

Xu Zheng­bing, head of the project "Draw­ing China with Chi­nese Char­ac­ters," said that the works on view show cre­ative ideas of de­sign­ers and col­lege stu­dents from Wuhan and Hong Kong. Hong Kong el­e­ments are in­cor­po­rated into each stroke of these vis­ual char­ac­ters and graph­ics. For ex­am­ple, the four Chi­nese char­ac­ters "购物天堂 (shop­ping par­adise)" com­bine el­e­ments such as hand­bags, high heels, and shop­ping build­ings. One can also find sym­bols of mahjong, bars, and shop signs in the three words of "兰桂坊( Lan Kwai Fong)."

The ex­hi­bi­tion will last un­til late Septem­ber.
