Artwork Completion Date
In the painting I created for MTR's Yau Ma Tei Station, I have taken as my subject matter a traditional Chinese residence and garden filled with scholar's objects, such as a tea table, chessboard, furniture and porcelain. The birdcages have created the mood of a leisured, relaxed life (Yau Ma Tei once had a famous bird market). With this image I wanted to remind people of the finer aspects of Chinese culture. The MTR is demonstrating to us the finer aspects of Hong Kong's modernization. I also wanted to portray a restful, homely image – and bringing people home is the aim of the MTR.
