Our Art Bridge programme invites artists in Hong Kong to showcase their works which are inspired by the dynamism and diversity of the city. We unveil to you our community artist exhibition by Monique Lai who makes an unflinching statement and deep dive into the beauty of Hong Kong. The photographs are a visual feast of the most traditional and yet bold culture of life aspects of the city.
“With Art Bridge, we can unearth artists that showcase our culture – our first collaboration with Monique Lai and her distinctive photographic perspective clearly showcases an aspect of Hong Kong that is taken for granted every day.” -HOTEL STAGE
It has been such a beautiful whirlwind showcasing this collection at Muse, Hotel Stage in Jordan, Kowloon. Even more incredible is the insight you learn as you guide people thru your vision of the work. Special thanks to all who have visited me at Muse, to Kuchiichi who sponsors tasty treats for guests, and to Gordon Cheung, for his elegant and modern frame design for this collection.

Step into a Hong Kong treasure chest of nostalgia and familiar sights. Journey back in time to discover Déjà Vu!
Interactive Play, Design Your Own Wall
Mid-way during the exhibition, I decided to feature a special wall with four images on magnets. Here I wanted the guests to have fun and play. This simple instruction triggered an instinctive reaction where each placed the frames as they wish. It was a beautiful insight to see their unguarded personality come alive with design.
“Love way that you have captured the lost disappearing way of Old Hong Kong, next step make it into a movie!”
I would like to express my appreciation to everyone who visited Hotel Stage. Especially those I did not get to meet Thank you for writing beautiful, supportive messages in my book!
A bygone era; let’s hope not!
Capturing classic fun treats of daily life in Hong Kong. This feeling of the past, of having seen this before, is the essence of the Déjà Vu Collection. Take a closer look at these details and notice how everything is meticulously neat, tidy and perfectly unnoticed. This is what I appreciate and want my viewer to see in this series.
40 local artists donated artworks
An amazing community effort to close 2020!
I was asked to participate in an internal charity auction by Brunswick MerchantCantos where funds donated would benefit Impact HK Charity. This organisation, based in Hong Kong is all about taking care of our homeless. I am so proud to gift the 1st Edition of Cha Yip Daan. The (star) meaning behind this particular work is the sign: 3 for 10HKD. I thought that was incredibly kind, and suited “The Kindness of Strangers” theme.
