As the Hong Kong Museum of Art heads into its 60th anniversary, Taiping Carpets Limited and the artist anothermountainman gifted Hong Kong Walk On / one, an artwork from the artist's iconic red white blue series, to the museum in a nod to its commitment to keep striving for a better future with the city's people.
This carpet piece was hand-tufted using 64 different hues of red, white and blue and 628 colour combinations of yarn. By applying intricate craftsmanship and a photorealistic design on a canvas, artisans created a visual illusion of the crumpled texture of the original fabric, reinterpreting the red white blue series. The work won the Grand Award of the DFA Design for Asia Awards 2022.
