Meet the Artists: Frog King [ FULL ]
23 Mar

Meet the Artists

“Meet the Artists” allows the arts ambassadors to talk to different local artists face to face to appreciate the artists’ artwork and learn their interesting stories behind.



Arts is Playful
A Tour to Frog King Museum

Wearing a pair of tailored made frog-eyed glasses, long black-and-white-coloured robe and giant frog ornaments are the signatures of Kwok Mang Ho (aka “Frog King”). Kwok has devoted the past 40 years in pursuing his creation of arts, and is often dubbed to be the most eccentric and unconventional Hong Kong artist. Are his performances and artworks created spontaneously and improvisational? Or else, everything is well planned and prepared? If you want to dig out the truth of his story, you could not miss the chance!
