Hong Kong Unconquered

by Kiddy Citny

Hong Kong’s people stand in a striking parallel to Berliners, Kiddy has observed. And, in a similar spirit, the German artist has painted a wall in Central District calling it “Hong Kong Unconquered”. It depicts the city as a woman rising from a stormy sea clutching the world in one hand and raising the other in distress but also in defiance. “Democracy,” says Kiddy, “as was the case in Berlin, had to be fought for, not with bullets, but with art, colour, and humour. Despite attempts by East German authorities to stop and silence people wanting to live freely, it moved me and others to paint. And its effects were felt globally, as it will be in Hong Kong—which explains her globe: we’re all connected.”
