The photograph that served as inspiration and foundation for this piece was taken during my visit in Hong Kong. After a few crazy days of combing through streets and markets of Hong Kong I decided to explore Chi Lin Nunnery, a buddhist temple in Kowloon.
It is an incredible place, like a quiet oasis of peace in the middle of the bustling crowded city.
This iconic building is part of the manicured Chinese gardens surrounding the nunnery. What inspired me most in the making of this artwork was the contrast between this sumptuous golden temple and the grey high rise apartment blocks looming in the background.
It’s an ideal piece of vibrant art for the confident owner.
