Art by Hong Kong artist Alvin c.k Lam
Whether you have lived in Hong Kong for only a couple months or for several years, you have probably fallen in love with the mix of the old and the new in Hong Kong. For your more artistic friends, you’ll probably need a more special gift than a map of the neighbourhood. The culture and heritage that makes Hong Kong unique is often in the most ordinary and familiar, like markets, street corners and alleys. Alvin c.k Lam captures everyday Hong Kong in watercolor, with an intimately sensitive eye. His paintings tell the stories of unsung heroes, characters like Au Yeung Cheong, famous signboard calligrapher, and Ho Sau-Mei, one of the last mahjong carving sifus.
You can buy a limited edition print of your favorite scene which will hang beautifully in any space and anchor a space back to our time in Hong Kong. Or if you are on a budget or can’t decide which one your friend will like the most, you can also buy a set of postcards featuring 5 Hong Kong craftspeople that includes all unsung heroes. They are beautiful when framed individually and hung together as a series. The best thing about this gift is that you can also send them to your friends even when they are settled into their new home. If you want to keep it a surprise, just send it to yourself on Prezitt and message us with the name and address of the recipient and your gift will be delivered. A delightful gesture for any occasion that will remind them of you and will for sure keep your shared memories alive!
