With a brief text explanation and an ironic tone. For example, the second article wrote that Hong Kong people "only know how to make money, superficial and without roots, don't know their own history, and lack the awareness of residents". In a relatively strong tone, he stated the mentality of the Hong Kong people he perceived (only knowing how to make money), and his judgment on the fate of the Hong Kong people (let others go). The painting is a parody of the hell map, and it is presented in an exaggerated and playful shape, which further strengthens the irony.
A perfect symbol of the fate Hong Kongers are telemarketing list about to face. The ironic intention of "Hong Kong Crime and Punishment" is to awaken Hong Kong people not only to make money, but also to have residents' awareness and pay attention to Hong Kong's own destiny. In the second case, Hou Junming reminded more clearly: "Attention: after the United Kingdom, China is your new suzerainty." (It seems that this is a very important warning!) 62179290_1218717654969057_69780670770095 Photo Credit: Hou Junming As a Taiwanese-born artist, Hou Junming is an outsider in Hong Kong, but he still tries to stay close to the local society, documenting and depicting Hong Kong society with his artistic techniques.
In addition to observing Hong Kong as objectively as possible, he also presents issues that he is particularly interested in based on his life experience in Taiwan. For example, in Hou Junming's creative self-report: During my one-month stay in Hong Kong, by arranging interviews with local people and collecting information from books and newspapers, I sorted out several political, social and cultural issues that Hong Kong people were more concerned about at that time. Although I entered Hong Kong to create as a foreign artist, many social situations easily touched me under the background factors of the same language and culture, as well as the similarities between Hong Kong and Taiwan.
