Sovereign Asian Art Foundation Pig Project 2019
Piggy Bank, 2019
Inspired by the blow molded piggy bank manufactured in Hong Kong during 60s and 70s, from the classic red color in plastic, the hand painted gold strips to the spray painted cute eyes, in a time of need, they served as toys as well as money boxes for children. It contains
wishes of thousands of children, reflecting the history, changes of daily life and the value of the city throughout decades.
Looking through the rectangular lens on the piggy bank artwork, one can see a kaleidoscopic scene of the current surroundings and oneself, the hopes contained inside the Piggy Bank now and then.
