Fill In The Blanks

[19/06/09] 

Fill in the blanks: What draws you to Hong Kong? Is it the _____? Or is it the ______? Just ask Tom, _____ and Harry, and you’ll get a different response. Perhaps it is precisely our unique individualism that makes Hong Kong so _______!

If this is indeed so, why not express your love for the city with the help of Fill In The Blanks. This tiny gallery does not only promote local art and design, but also produces several lines of local kitschy T-shirts that would make for a great souvenir to give to your friends from out of town. Their series called ‘Guan’ (which means ‘an official’ in Chinese) was inspired by the ornate robes that the doods with long cues wore during the Qing Dynasty. For film buffs, FITB has a ‘Movie’ series featuring nostalgic designs that hearken back to the Golden era of Shaw Brothers and Bruce Lee movies. To add to their ‘Cultural Revolution’ series, they recently produced a ‘Sport Rangers’ series, where the Red Guards, ‘Fu Wah’ Olympic mascots and the Power Rangers all collide.

You won’t find “I ____ Hong Kong” T’s here!
