Kowloon King is Joel Chung's third collection of works commemorating Tsang Tsou-choi, the late Hong Kong graffiti artist self-styled as 'Kowloon King'. Chung personally knew Tsang for more than 15 years, and was dismayed by the gradual erasure of his works in the years following his death. Subsequently, Chung initiated Disappearance, a project to recreate some of Kowloon King's graffiti. By reviving these distinctive creations, Chung attempted to alert Hong Kong to the systematic vanishing of its old buildings and traditions, and reveal the emptiness of an existence devoid of art, music, poetry, crazy ideas and love.
