From Zero to ART
Featuring the famous Hong Kong graffiti artist Uncle, a lively graffiti art is now at the agnès b. K11 RUE DE MARSEILLE store.
Graffiti starts in the streets, so does revolution. One can always seek for self-renovation through the world of both art and running.
On April 3, a group of Graffiti Runners ran along the narrow streets and lanes of Sham Shui Po and explored this seemingly ordinary district full of creativity. Together, the runners visited this graffiti space attentively with joy and happiness, learning about the street art culture in Hong Kong.
Art changes us, and we change the world!
This Tuesday the Graffiti Runners ran in Wong Chuk Hang to discover that this old district – where many industrial and residential buildings are located, it has been secretly transformed into a lively street art “studio”! They are all impressed by the colorful walls of graffiti along the route, the art that makes it a beautiful and distinctive community.
Art is my own religion.
Graffiti Runners’ journey to Kwun Tong yesterday! Along with the urban renewal in recent years, this district is a combination of tradition and modernity, where both old markets, new commercial and industrial buildings exist together. Embracing the evening breeze, the Graffiti Runners ran through the streets and lanes, discovering the district which has undergone changes, and experiencing the art that is still outstanding in darkness.
SPORT b. x ROCer’s Graffiti Run 2018 had come to a fruitful end! On April 24th the last run was successfully completed, in celebration of both the runners, and also the very first launch of PURE LINE – SPORT b.’s sportswear series designed with functional details.
In the morning at the agnès b. K11 RUE DE MARSEILLE store, the famous local graffiti artist Uncle performed vividly the live graffiti art on the shop windows. Combining his own graffiti style with the theme “Graffiti Run”, he also added the unique b. dinosaur pattern of SPORT b., and the iconic camouflage pattern of PURE LINE to embellish the vibrant graffiti style.
And at night we’re happy to have Akina Fong to cheer the runners up in the running ceremony! Later the local music brand Yellow, singer-songwriter Yukilovey and busking artist Judas Law welcomed the Graffiti Runners with their wonderful live music shows. Each of participants indeed enjoyed a marvelous night, and shared joy and laughter together.
