Chui was considering the average life of a Hongkonger when creating those works, which can often be a stressful struggle—especially when you are young and an artist. “An artist’s life is tough, very tough, and it is too easy to give up,” Chui says. “It is very important to support Hong Kong artists. If local collectors are only interested in international artists, then who will support the local artists? Without support, it’s very difficult for artists to survive and develop their careers.”
