12 May Street art in Hong Kong given the chance to shine thanks to HKwalls mural programme
Ahmad Rida Nisar’s mural is whimsical: there’s a peacock with its tail in full bloom, a camel under a night desert sky and a trippy tree and mushrooms that would happily fit into a scene from Alice in Wonderland. It’s easy to see why the 23-year-old Chinese-Pakistani artist is eyeing a career in prop design.
The piece puts you in a good mood but Nisar admits there were challenges during the three-week creation process.
“There were moments of intense heat and torrential rain and I was also observing Ramadan,” says Nisar, referring to Islam’s holy month during which Muslims fast every day from dawn to sunset.
