Carnaby Fair is joining hands with The Stallery to present Hong Kong’s first “Cap-Art” exhibition entitled “Sub9ture,” featuring seven capsule collections by local Hong Kong creators. Transforming The Stallery’s gallery space into a creative studio, visitors are invited to explore the diverse sub-cultures through the perspective of the featured artists, who will showcase works including digital installations, large-scale displays, and engaging interactive experiences.
In support of Hong Kong’s local creative community, Carnaby Fair has invited seven sub-culture artists to create wearable art by imprinting their rebellious aesthetic onto a canvas of caps, t-shirts and NFT digital art. The artists collaborating on this cross-media project range from street artists, animators, drag performers, illustrators, and tattoo artists, including The Plumber King (渠王), Ernest Chang, BOMS, DaddyBoy®️, Cynthia Luk, Son of Fire Month and Metal Day (丁月金日子), and Muschi.
Beyond the gallery exhibition, “Sub9ture” will also host a large-scale collaborative graffiti jamming by the cult figure and street artist, Mr. Yim (also known as “The Plumber King”) in conjunction with contemporary graffiti artist BOMS on the facade of The Stallery. Celebrating Hong Kong street culture and its legacy, this cross-generational artwork symbolizes the unity of modern and traditional graffiti art. Through this collaborative work, visitors will have the chance to witness the creativity and history of Hong Kong graffiti culture.
