To tie in with the celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the establishment of the HKSAR, the Water Supplies Department (WSD) collaborates with the Hong Kong Arts Centre in organising a mural project.
The mural “Water Save Dream”, which is now on display at the fencing wall of WSD Hong Kong and Islands Regional Office, was designed by artists Sim Chan and Stanley Siu. The artwork, blending traditional landscape painting style with modern elements, portrays the impounding reservoirs and other landmark waterworks installations in Hong Kong, which signifies the WSD’s contribution to the city.
Sim Chan graduated from Hong Kong Art School in 2008 majoring in painting. Looking into the ever-changing cityscape, Sim unlocks the urban boundaries and reinterprets the architectural form with artistic reminiscences.
Stanley Siu is an architect from Hong Kong as well as an active curator in the realm of contemporary art. He received the Young Architect Awards 2013 from the Hong Kong Institute of Architects and was the Chief Curator for the 15th Venice Biennale International Architecture Exhibition–Hong Kong Exhibition “Stratagems in Architecture, Hong Kong in Venice” in 2016.
