I have this as my background on my computer, it is awesome.
It really shows the makeshift nature of KWC, and it's the only drawing of the city I've seen that acknowledges that it was right next to an airport.
Because of height regulation around the airport in Kowloon, building in KWC were limited to 13 floors. It's scary to think what would have happened if the city had pushed higher.

Good job!

It`s a really interesting city, to think about all the things that happened there. And how your pic shows Kowloon is just so cool

Remarkible composition. The piece would ussually give the impression of a suffocating expanse of concrete, but the use of the pallete make this piece open and energetic. Impressive work and style.

I love your style of work a lot man. And I love kowloon walled city, it's inspired a lot of my own work.
If you don't have it already I can recommend you a book called 'City of Darkness' it's really worth the buy and has a lot of unique pics and info about this place.
Cheers.

yes, I wanted 'City of Darkness' than before.
I have only 'the last of kowloon' shintaro nakamura.
By the way,Do you know 'battleship island'?
Possibly it may arouse your interest.

You have a good memory. I only think about KOWLOON Walled City by a photograph and a reference...Furthermore, My imagination was expanded by movie picture "Swallowtail", Japan.

I didn't know that that place was called "KOWLOON Walled City" until I saw this painting .. I didn't even know that it was demolished...all I know is that kowloon city has changed alot and is still changing/developing.. for many ppl it is just some old dirty buildings gone for good but for artists or art loving ppl those were treasures..

wow,
I am happy that you recalled happy-memory.
My art is a fossil.
Think about a past by a fossil, and can feel boil rise of the imagination.
You will get strange sense if you watched a modern fossil while there is it in the present age.It is the art that I aim at.
Therefore, I call this a "future fossil".

This is gorgeous work. Clear reminders of all the photos you see of big planes flying overhead on final approach at Kai-Tek. I need to figure out how to get a print of this (and not just as a sticker for my computer).

This is not a piece that I will easily forget.

I love how it gives off very familiar sensations of urban experiences while at the same time displaces the viewer into some terrifying, reverse-vertigo fantasy.

Great feelings are invoked when I see this image. When I move, I'm getting a print of this for the new place. Part of the reason I joined Deviant was this piece. For anyone who has ever loved the city life yet still looked to new horizons. Inspiring. :meditate: :clap:

Thank you,
I tried new approach to express the huge energy that a city contained.It is to expose power.

Violence, a giant, energetic power, monument,
Or religious,
An annual ring of the civilization,full of joys and sorrows,,,

I wanted to express that its power was always covered in the everyday city.
