【Art Appreciation 101】Street Calligraphy in Hong Kong

Speaking of iconic Hong Kong’s urban streetscapes, you cannot miss the shop signs above the crowded streets. It is easy to find handwritten signs in our city, but can you identify their script styles? In addition to giving a unique look and feel, different scripts are written sensibly to match with the function, users and space of a building.

In the video “Street Calligraphy in Hong Kong” below, , Raymond Tang, curator of the Hong Kong Heritage Museum, will explore aesthetic calligraphy above and below the ground with us.
