MA PUI YING, MACHAI

Hong Kong
以上圖案均代表一個香港俚語。俚語,是一種當地人民在的慣用的語言,又稱方言。作為一個香港人,平時用到這些俚語,都不以為然,直到繪畫的一刻 才發現每一個都具有獨特的意象。

The set of 45 symbols is related to the Hong Kong slang. A slang is a language that local people commonly use, also called regional dialect. As a Hong Konger, I didn’t notice this slang as something special until I started to investigate it. Turning it into pic- tographic symbols, I have discovered their uniqueness and reflection of local taste.
