Eight budding local artists have joined hands to capture their impressions of Hong Kong as their home city in the latest ˇ§Art in MTRˇ¨ exhibition to be staged at Exit/Entrance J of Central Station. Commuters can experience the diversity of the city through the eyes of artists, including Ms Tang Ying-chiˇ¦s landscape paintings, the wood carvings made by Ms Violet Shum and Mr Dave Ho, as well as portraits by artist Bisweet.

This exhibition, entitled ˇ§Live Living: JCCAC Arts@MTRˇ¨, features over 40 artworks created by eight emerging and acclaimed resident artists from the Jockey Club Creative Arts Centre (JCCAC) from 28 April to 4 July 2021. These artworks making use of diverse mediums consisting of painting, wood carving, photography, illustration and installation art revisit different facets of living, dwellings and society.

ˇ§At a time when people aspire to more holistic lifestyles, art becomes a treat in our everyday existence. We hope people will find the diversified exhibits to be thought-provoking and maybe even inspirational in jazzing up their life and living spaces,ˇ¨ said Ms Lillian Hau, Executive Director of JCCAC.

ˇ§Art and life are inextricably interwoven. Art is a source of inspiration in our daily life and it also takes us out of our routine and relieves stress. This exhibition is part of MTRˇ¦s efforts to enliven passengersˇ¦ lives in their MTRˇ¦s journeys,ˇ¨ said Ms Linda Choy, Corporate Affairs Director of MTR Corporation.
