SESSION [ ONE ] was the first ever Hong Kong experience of “COLOUR ME, HK!” proudly endorsed by the global-recognized Pictoplasma Germany. This global third session of “COLOUR ME”—“COLOUR ME, HK!” was all about the continuation of “COLOUR ME, PICTOPLASMA”’s concept to Asia of providing a whole white room for selected artists to create a full room of black and white illustrations, scribbles and character madness lively and collaboratively. Attendees witnessed live character writing from wall to wall and could lovingly color in the characters, turning the space into an evolving colouring and activity room. Hong Kong artists who had contributed in “COLOUR ME, Hong Kong!” including Alex Lau, Cubemen, ESP Visuals, Graphic Airlines, HKR, Hobsek, Jay, Max, Zono and 4Getboutit. Plus we had a totally new presentation with paints and brushes of the energy drink RED BULL through “RED BULL MADE OF ART”. The evening was also with good music. Underground rising star The Darlings the band played us some indie pop to keep you hype. And, our favourite deejay Simon Pang gave a quick warm up to the crowds with his rock, breaks and some hip hop. Close to 800 people packed the venue & they got so crazily and busy to color the walls. It was a truly unforgettable time. Then the colored walls were sent to idN Gallery in Wanchai for a 2-week exhibition and taken at last by art appreciators.
SESSION [ TWO ] was a good mixture of visual refreshment. “Feel Good World-Channel” screening of the finest animation/video collection from 8 of the finest global collectives/artists including DevilRobots(JP), Freestyle Collective(US), HelloHikimori(FR), Jeremyville(AU), Jon Burgerman(UK), Momorobo(SG) and Nanospore)US). We are proud to have presented their works and we wish this part can keep growing with our theme“feel good” in the coming Taipei session. & We had “Fingercroxx Stamp Station” which was a workshop where you could freely choose from the feel good characters from Ian Stevenson(UK) & Phlash(UK) plus more choices and stamp them on the tees & trucker hats wherever you want. make yourself an identity. thru that. We also had our “MUZIK TWO” with live hip hop on stage DIMEYEZ and hip hop & rnb set by dj Rayl to heat the dance floor. Newly added at the last minute, we had an exhibition of 30 pieces of Hierophat “Drop” toy customisation by Hong Kong artists Alex Lau, Cubeman, ESP Visuals, Graphicairlines, Retron + more. We donated through the profit made from the special “Feel Good” drinks + “Fingercroxx Stamp Station. Close to 700 people packed the session [two]. It was another wonderful time.
