About the ArtWork

While the iconic works of the Plumber King are commonly seen on the streets of Hong Kong, it is the first time ever that his calligraphy is presented on a grey, cement-like canvas. The NFT also includes a 2-minute production video that records the highlights of the production process that spanned over two hours from measurement to meticulously writing with specific brushes. 


About the Artist

The Plumber King (@The.Plumber.King) Yim Chiu-tong is doubtlessly the most famous plumber and one of the most iconic graffiti artists in Hong Kong. As a plumber, he started writing simple advertisements all over Hong Kong offering “sewers cleared” and “no scaffolding” with his distinctive calligraphic styles in the 60s. After half a century of displaying such iconic street art in all parts of Hong Kong, the Plumber King has now become an icon of local culture. Apart from having his works featured in exhibitions, his life story and original calligraphic style are known to have strong ties to the city, humanity and arts.

    作品簡介

    渠王作品大家隨街可見,但把大字畫在一塊仿水泥的畫布上,相信是全港首次創作。不要小看寥寥數字,由簡單以木條度位間格,到採用不同大小粗幼漆帚書寫,足足花了渠王兩個多小時時間。《渠王》NFT特別附送一段約兩分鐘短片,裡面濃縮記錄了整個創作過程。


    作者簡介
    渠王(@The.Plumber.King),原名嚴照棠,香港著名通渠匠。60年代起以通渠謀生,為了招攬生意開始在街頭書寫廣告,別具一格的字體及布局組合出家喻戶曉的「渠王廣告」,深入民心。超過半個世紀的街頭寫作,讓嚴照棠被視為繼「九龍皇帝曾灶財」之後另一位甚具代表性的街頭藝術家;其生活經歷、字體創作更成為香港文化的研究對象,反映了城巿、人文及藝術的微妙關係。現在渠王的墨寶不單以街頭廣告形式出現在大街小巷,還會於展覽展出,成為香港獨有的本土文化之一。

    *藝術品於2021年9月30至10月24日期間於尖沙咀海港城畫廊舉行的《美紙》一周年《一紙憶記》聯展中展出,隨後才付運藝術品予買家。
