Description +-

For decades the 1,624-foot mountain on the Kowloon peninsula whose shape resembles a lion has signified the core values of Hong Kong people - the solidarity and perseverance despite a harsh external environment.

During the social movement, protesters repeatedly showed slogans from the top of the mountain due to its emotional significance and visibility from a wide area across the Kowloon peninsula.

This painting specially captures the moment during the social movement where 210,000 people formed a 50-km "Hong Kong Way" human chain on 23 August 2019, leading all the way to the top of Lion Rock Hill, shining beams of light overlooking Hong Kong. This action was inspired by "Baltic Way" of 23 August 1989, where two million people joined hands across Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania to advocate for independence.

“Art serves as a counter narrative to fight against authoritarian regime's attempt to rewrite history.” Ricker Choi.

Gentle, subdued, and impressionistic are the stylistic elements characterising Choi’s paintings. But underneath the soft and tender hues are strong emotional undercurrent, reflected by the symbols or moments the artist chose to capture on his canvases.

The subjects Choi depicts reflect the public sentiments on the pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong. These are symbols that the protesters recognise as the key moments or elements of the movement. The collective recognition forms a supportive bond and mutual understanding among the protesters that need not be spelled out. These moments of emotional intimacy represent the currents of warmth and humanity that is the lasting hope in dire humanitarian situations unfolding in the city.

Choi immigrated to Canada from Hong Kong in 1980’s. Seeing the political upheaval in Hong Kong, he decided to use art to honour the bravery and fight for freedom, getting inspirations from observing specific incidents. He has been using art to raise money for organisations helping Hong Kong’s fight for freedom, and is widely recognised in the community. His story has been featured in Apple Daily - the now closed independent news outlet in Hong Kong.

Based on our agreement with the artist, 70% of the pre-VAT price excluding frames will be donated to support the social movement. Donation will be made to Hong Kong Watch.
