The colorful, fast-paced and advancing energy of Hong Kong’s past and present has been a great source of inspiration to Nicole, one of our talented artists, for this bright wall painting! “What I enjoyed particularly was to provide my own understanding of a city that I truly love. Not only did I enjoy painting my take on the town that I like to call my home, but I also enjoyed the challenges that the mural brought; Tackling a massive size and figuring out which mediums would articulate best – it helped strengthen my artistic understanding and abilities. An overall humbling learning experience.” The painting is located in the office of Meltwater Hong Kong, an agency that focuses on business strategies. Encompassing a space of 19 × 8 feet, the concept of this mural illustration is linked to vibrant Hong Kong.
When Mayer Brown JSM came to us we never really thought of creating such an artistic & personal gift but we realized it would be a great artistic solution. This is the good part of the creative world: Discover new art possibilities and we are always looking for innovative creative solutions and bespoke experiences to please our clients and friends. This project was about celebrating the retirement of a senior HSBC lawyer through a very original artistic gift and it was indeed such a good idea! The process took time and we started sketching and photoshop editing, then we imagined different effects according to the client requirements. Creative art is never easy to work on. Little by little the acrylic painting came to life. We had to calligraphy personal words and signs which was not an easy part, then we framed the work with a gold background and an American white box. The gift was offered during a dinner gala and much appreciated!
