Ginko Yang
Semitropical Metropolis


Commissioned | New Talent

Why did you make this work:
A collaboration with Condé Nast Traveler China on a featured article about Hong Kong memory.

How was the illustration used:
In printed magazines.

How did you make this work:
Serial illustrations created based on the teenage memory of my previous frequent visit to Hong Kong. It was always summer, and I can read from the passersby's faces a hint of lost, or else desire. Some objects have become symbolic images for my impression on the heated metropolitan. I used a simple but striking palette to emphasize them.
