After years in the fashion industry, Zoie made a foray into the world of illustration.

A recent mural for the non-profit arts organisation HKwalls can be found at Sheung Wan’s Square Street. Many of Zoie’s illustrations carry a positive message and bring a smile to the faces of those who encounter them.
Kenny Leung works in the media of drawing, painting and printmaking. His fascination with Hong Kong architecture and cityscapes has led him to reinvent and reassemble buildings in the form of mammals, sea creatures, and more abstract concepts. His work invites people to rethink the things they see every day and question what is seen at first glance, appealing to those with a creative imagination who enjoy a touch of the surreal.

His colourful works illustrate life under the neon lights.
