Chan’s Roast Chestnut Cart

Museum Grade reprint on Hahnemühle German Etching 310gsm mould-made paper. Limited reprint. Every autumn, Mrs. Chan busts out her mobile cart fitted with a giant gas-powered wok, hand-roasting chestnuts and sweet potatoes at the Mong Kok Flower Market. Year after year, the now 70-year-old Mrs. Chan has been carrying on this beloved winter local tradition, a tradition that is at risk of vanishing within this generation as itinerant hawker licenses are no longer transferable or issued by the government. This painting is part of the ongoing series titled "Unspoken Stories, Unsung Heroes" - watercolor sketches paying tribute to the remarkable men and women who are keeping Hong Kong's fading traditional industries alive. With few or no successors left, most of these trades are believed to become history within this decade and disappear entirely with this generation. Total run of 150 reprints, irrespective of size
