The radio antenna which was installed in the roof of kowloon innumerably. It obstructed the root of the craft which did taking off and landing in neighborhood Airport The radio antenna was removed several times by Government authorities.
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.
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.
wow, Your art is cool! 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. [link] thanks,
My bus always used to pass by here when i was still a kid... it was really fun,scary as well as noisy seeing the planes going over ur head from such a close distant..it was really amazing..missing good old days~
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).
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.
