Michelle Fung Hong Kong 2084
Local artist Michelle Fung has released her latest collection of six art prints.
“Hong Kong 2084” reimagines Hong Kong’s fantastical sustainable future—where historical, contemporary, and futuristic green buildings co-exist, and where endangered animals flourish. If the artist had a magic wand, this is how she would have her city in 2084.
You can now collect a piece of “Hong Kong 2084” in support of Plastic Free Seas. 20% of online sales will be donated o PFS until Sept 30.
Plastic Free Seas believes that art can raise awareness and even promote behaviour change, and we have been following Michelle’s work for years. “It is a pleasure to partner with Michelle on this project which ultimately speaks to our mission to reduce the use of single-use plastic for the health of our planet — the ocean, the animals, the plants and the people.”
About the Artist and the Collection …
Having been an immigrant to Canada in the 1990s, Michelle Fung created this collection to celebrate her city as Hong Kong experiences another migration peak.
With the prolonged closure of restaurants in the evening, there has been an increase in the volume of take-away meals and food deliveries. The corresponding proliferation of single-use containers, mostly plastic, along with the food packaging waste created at the quarantine hotels and isolation facilities is staggering.
Marine plastic pollution has long been an issue close to the artist’s heart. Her body of works “Plastic, plastic, every where!” (2015-2019) has garnered multiple local and international awards as a short film, an illustrated book and installations.
“I am envious of Macau that can keep so many of their historical buildings. I wish we had kept the beautiful colonial buildings. I wanted to pay Hong Kong tribute while raising money for a charity that speaks to me.”
