This is an endearing representation of Hong Kong by the artist. In a subtle mixture of traditional techniques and aesthetics and modern artistic expressions, Fung used the contrast of black and white, solids and voids to generate a strong sense of rhythm and evoke a boundless landscape of mountains and sea. Sense of traditional aesthetic is delineated with a combination of traditional Chinese medium and western composition.
