Press Release (ePRNews.com) - KOWLOON BAY, Hong Kong - Jan 17, 2016 - Passengers passing through MTR Sheung Wan and Yau Tong stations in the coming month may find themselves attracted by illustrations featuring a rich combination of colours. The 17 traditional and digital mixed media art pieces on display are by Hong Kong illustrator and designer Ms Helen C Y Yau. Depicting the innocence and aspirations of children, Ms Yau aims to encourage her audience to revisit their own childhood dreams through her creations.
“Through my illustrations, I want to bring back alive the innocent, magical and playful childhood that we all had, filled with dreams, colours, love and joy,” said Ms Yau. “I hope that through my exhibition, passengers can recall their own wonderful childhood memories and be reminded of the importance of giving children the freedom and chance to make their dreams come true.”
“Ms Yau’s vividly colourful illustrations are not only a joy to look at, but embedded in each of the dreamy images is also the deeper thought that we should never forget the child in us, and more importantly to nurture the children around us. We are very pleased to offer the MTR Roving Art platform to showcase Ms Yau’s talent to a wider Hong Kong audience,” said Ms Linda So, Corporate Affairs Director of MTR Corporation.
Entitled “Art, Colour & Power”, the exhibition will be on show at Sheung Wan and Yau Tong stations until 15 February. It will then move to Tin Hau and Tiu Keng Leng stations for display from 19 February to 28 March.
“art in mtr – roving art” is an on-going initiative featuring temporary art exhibitions at different MTR stations. About 10 exhibitions are held each year to promote artistic talent and the public’s appreciation of art.
