About the artwork

How does the artist express the monumentality of the architecture that surrounds him? Navigating through the streets of Hong Kong can be a difficult experience, particularly since the city is one of the most densely populated in the world. With around 7 million people living within 1 100 square kilometres, it is the city with the most skyscrapers standing over 150 metres tall. The young artist Andy Yeung thus uses various photographic techniques while also delivering highly personal testimonies that subvert all notions of traditional perspective. Whether looking up to take in the full expanse of these structures, or taking to the airways with a drone for the "Urban Jungle" series, his optical illusions are striking. With their abstract quality, these photographs thus provide spectators with an impression of a graphic composition in which the lines and geometric shapes intersect in an arrangement oscillating between optical pleasure and visual reality.

When I was travelling back from Europe, I had an intimate aerial view of Hong Kong from above. Looking down, I saw gazillions of buildings soaring high into the skies and the idea of creating a drone series offering a glimpse into the reality of living in one of the most densely populated areas of the world just sprung to my mind. I hope this series can get people to think about the high-density living in one of the world’s richest cities and the message that I’m trying to send is that HK is a great city, but lurking beneath the prosperity is a severe housing problem that depresses every dweller in this city living in horrid conditions.
