Graffitist Lousy Drops New Art Piece in Tai Hang's Side Space

Hong Kong’s born and bred graffiti guru Lousy strikes back this fall 2022 with a funky art piece decorated in Matt Chung’s new micro-gallery, Side Space, in Tai Hang.

The artist, most well-known for the ubiquitous “kissface” and all-seeing eyes characters adorning Hong Kong’s walls, gates, metal structures, and hidden lanes, has dropped “Winkin’ Buddha,” blending the Buddhist image and his signature blend of bright bold primary colours.

The spray paint and inked wooden panel is flanked by two smaller pieces, “Buddha beam on found object.” These hover above on a bed of inked flowers, giving life to the Tai Hang corner amongst a litany of cha chaan tengs, flashy coffee shops, and repair shops.

This is Side Space’s third exhibition, collaborating with Lousy to feature the Hong Kong’s fastest growing artists, most well-known for his gonzo city graffiti projects. “Winkin Buddha” will feature in the art space until Aug. 30.
