HONG KONG CULTURE EXHIBITION

JOINT EXHIBITION

11.1 - 30.1.2019, 8.5 - 26.5.2019
HONG KONG GALLERY

Toys that were "Made in Hong Kong" were once the top in the world. 1960s-1970s was the heyday of Hong Kong's manufacturing industry. Local-made toys were sold around the world, and when the factory moved north in the late 1980s, Hong Kong's toy industry gradually declined. But, in the late 1990s, Hong Kong's toy industry took an opportunity to create art toys that surprised artists and collectors around the world. Hong Kong's art toy creators continued to develop this trend. STREAMS Hong Kong held its first exhibition with the theme of "Hong Kong culture" and invited 30 artists from all over the world to join in the exhibition.

Don't Cry In The Morning

Lives and works in Hong Kong

Don't Cry In The Morning, made up of ASA and Poppykitty in 2014, the meaning of the brand name is to remind the public and themselves that no matter what difficulties and sadnesses they encounter, it is a new day and a new beginning after sleeping! The team uses observation and imagination in life to inject life and stories into different forms of creation, and focuses on illustrations and handmade resin toys. The main characters of resin toys include Harshly Butty, Banana Hotdag and so on. They are handmade by two people in the process of design, shaping, sanding, and coloring, and each is unique. In 2016, the team began to create vinyl toy characters-"Yaku" and “Fuku”, and became toy lovers' favorite toys! New characters `` Daawo '' and `` Lillian '' launched in 2018.
