Reprint of "In the Mood for Love"
Artwork Reprint
Artfully directed by Wong Kar-wai, In the Mood for Love is regarded as one of the greatest masterpieces of the 21st century, and a love song to Hong Kong. Set in 1962, the film follows the development of romance between two lonely neighbors, played by Tony Leung Chiu-wai and Maggie Cheung Man-yuk —a melancholic tale of love and loneliness, desire and restraint as each is trapped in an unhappy marriage. Here, this iconic diner scene is reimagined with the pair uniting over mooncake —a symbol for togetherness, wholeness, and harmony.

Alvin c.k. Lam
Hong Kong, Hong Kong
Born and raised in Hong Kong, Alvin recalls picking up a paintbrush long before chopsticks. In 2020, while experimenting with watercolor urban sketching, Alvin inadvertently embarked on a journey of 'rediscovering' his hometown as he uncovers untold stories along the way —often in the most ordinary, familiar, yet most overlooked places. Each painting brings to life tales of (extra)ordinary people whose lifetime of devotion and resilience weave into the rise of Hong Kong and the rich cultural heritage that makes Hong Kong so uniquely Hong Kong.
