'Hong Kong is not China': Artist's illustrations go viral
A collection of illustrations created by a Hong Kong designer has gone viral since being published to the Facebook page of Local Studio HK (本土工作室).
The collection features 24 illustrations depicting the difference
between mainland China and Hong Kong, covering topics including cultural
habits, discipline, language and socio-political issues such as
judicial structures, food safety and censorship.
The unidentified designer of the illustrations revealed
that the purpose of the collection was to “Mourn the fact that Hong
Kong has been 'colonized' by mainland China" and to "tell the world
about the differences between Hong Kongers and Chinese people".
One of the images takes a direct jab at the Hong Kong police force, which last year came under scrutiny for its handling of the pro-democracy protests in the territory.
While the Facebook post has racked up nearly 4,000 "likes" from
supporters, others accused the artist of generalizing and directing
unnecessary hate at the people of mainland China.
"I understand HK is going through a difficult time right now. You
have every right to be angry, but if you are angry, be angry at the
government and the communist party," wrote one Maggie Chou. "Posts like
this will hurt mainlanders and make mainlanders think HK people are
arrogant. I know you are proud of your distinct identity, but please
don't do it on the cost of others."
"Comparing mainland's worst with HK's best," wrote Xiang Min. "Free speech? More like hate speech."
