Hong Kong Underground

During Lefty’s holiday in Hong Kong, he managed to check-out Comix Magneto, an exhibition that gathers almost all the non-mainstream local artists. This is a Hong Kong comics art exhibition that you won't see any of the usual kungfu stuffs, almost as refreshing as an American comics exhibition without super heroes. The concept of this exhibition is, each artist prepares his/her own artwork based on a numbers of triangular blocks. Some of the artists even turn their creation into an installation art piece. To get more info, go to comixhomebase. Among the notable artists are Li Chi-tak, Stella So, Ted Young, Craig Eu Yeung, Ah Hing and our friend Elphonso Lam.
