Pop Attack

A Pop Attack on Hong Kong

We all remember that guy at the back of maths class, who was always drawing, always sketching away, and colouring in; his head in a daze, creating his own martial arts moves in the playground and his own secret language in the bathroom. The ultimate creative type, he was the kind of guy who could see colour on a black and white television (not literally) and potential in every blank canvas. Well, that guy’s grown up and now he’s got his own show.
 

 


Pop Attack (not to be confused with pop tarts), will be the first solo show by UK-born, Hong Kong-based illustrator and graphic designer Lun Wong (a.k.a. 1KStyles, which, if it was a JPEG, would be very small indeed). The exhibition opens tonight at M1NT, which has already displayed his works for the past few weeks, and will run for the next three months. With the help of Snow Queen Vodka (as Rapunzel Rum was all out), the event will showcase 1KStyles’ ability to capture pop culture icons like Elvis, Bruce Lee and Jimi Hendrix (unfortunately, none of whom he’s met) in bold, startling street-art style animation. The event, which will benefit the Hong Kong Cancer Fund with an auction on the night, will also coincide with the launch of Brouhaha Magazine (which sounds like a drunken New Zealander), a new monthly publication that will cover the city’s pop culture scene from January 2010. 

See, staying within the lines can pay off.
