MTR station

‘In the Kitchen Cupboard’ permanent interior designs for Cheung Sha Wan MTR underground station, Hong Kong, 2003

'I created artwork for the renovation of the entire station in this residential area. I gave it a homely, playful feel to reflect this, with interpretations of objects found in local kitchens, such as ceramic spoons, teapots and bowls. I like to hear people say “meet you by the big teacup” rather than “at exit A3”. '
