Black Sheep

After furniture shopping in Causeway Bay's Homeless, my Mom and I accidentally came across Wun Ying Gallery upstairs. Carrie Chau, an artist featured in Wun Ying Gallery, has always been selling her products in Homeless, and now she has set up her own little place upstairs.

Carrie Chau's pieces have always reminded me of Nara Nishitomo. As a local artist, her works have often been associated with many different charitable organisations, where her products are sold in for the benefit of causes such as UNICEF and Heifer Hong Kong.

The Gallery is mainly in two parts: the exhibition and the shop. The exhibition features sculptures and paintings, most of which are behind bars. My mom thinks it creates the feeling that the protagonists of artwork have been trapped.

The shop sells everything that they use to sell in Homeless. If you like Carrie Chau's work, then you are in luck, because it is sold in every way you can imagine: figurine, lamp, poster, postcard, t-shirt, bag, purse, card holder, clock, cushion, mug......

So next time you are heading to Homeless, be sure to drop by Wun Ying Gallery as well!
