Q. What is your artist name?
A. Sinic is my artist name – I like the alphabet combination and it sounds and looks unique and different to me.
Q. What is the inspiration to your art piece?
A. I wanted to take viewers to what Mong Kok is known for, their Majong Clubs (麻雀館) . The goal was to allow audience to envision themselves in the smokey, grimy and messy but energetic majong clubs. It is a typical night in the most bustling district in Kowloon side with neon lights and signs lit up.
Q: Where did you grow up in Hong Kong?
A: I grew up in Shek Kip Mei. I love the local culture and atmosphere there and everybody seem to be connected in one way or the other.
Q: What else do you do besides street art?
A: I started my creative career in 2003 doing mostly graffiti/ street art for ten years. Over that period of time, I had developed a distinctive personal style and have fortunately been able to work with a variety of companies and brands and gradually moved on to displaying in art galleries. I am also an event planner. I’ve planned and participated in various large scale street culture exhibition including the the launch of the Asian graffiti “battle wall”competition. I am passionate about the street art culture so during that same year, I helped produced INVASIAN which is a magazines dedicated to all things graffiti in Asia.
