A celebration of street art and creative collaboration, HKwalls 2017 will take place in the industrial district of Wong Chuk Hang from March 18 to March 26. Since its launch in 2014, HKwalls has actively engaged the public, while providing opportunities for artists to showcase and share their talents — as they bring intrigue and color to Hong Kong’s streets. The images featured here (1-9) were painted during HKwalls Street Art Festival 2016.
