We – Hongkongers are always hectic. Adults are busing with their works, while kids are occupied with all their school assignments and tasks. We all long for a moment to take a deep breath, yet in reality, we can only take a minute of pause when we are taking public transport or waiting for a lift. Are you fatigue? When you need some self-time, will you choose to spend the time scrolling the screen of your cellphone or choose to have a look at things and people around you? Are you curious about the stories of the people that you encounter every day?
And have you ever thought of running out from your comfort zone & view the world from another perspective?
This summer, artist Brandon Chan is going to bring participants to visit the comics exhibition – OUAT, from a brand new angle. Together, we try to think, write and draw what we encounter. Slowing down the pace of your life, let your creativity explode and try to connect yourself with others via your comics drawing!
Life moves at such a fast pace that it seems to pass us by before we can really enjoy it. Slowing down is a conscious choice, and not always an easy one, but it leads to a greater appreciation for life and a greater level of happiness. Let’s join us in touring the exhibition from another perspective, and tell people your unique comics story.

About the Tutor
Graduated from the Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University. As an artist, he considers himself a storyteller who collects stories about objects and creates different forms of narratives to look at the complex relationship between objects and people. Brandon’s practice put much emphasis on research process that brings the artist close to wide ranges of people. This also enables his creative outcomes to be an engaging platform to share people’ stories in reflecting upon what material culture means.
