Galerie Huit presents the solo exhibition The Charm of Old Master Q by Joseph Wong, one of Hong Kong's most influential comic artists

Created in 1962, the comic and characters humorously portray various social situations from 1960s Hong Kong such as poverty, influence of foreign culture and the integration of local communities. It reflects as well as represents the experience and mentality of many Hong Kong people from the 1960s to 1980s, documenting the ever-changing social trends.

When Wong took up his father's passion and continued creating the comic since 1980s, Old Master Q has also taken up a more contemporary approach and evolved with the present society.

In the exhibition, the most anticipated new works are the 3 Life-Size Sculpture of Old Master Q that are created and shown for the first time. By creating the Old Master Q character as 3-D figures that can be touched and felt, Wong brought his 2-dimensional humor and characters into our 3-D reality. Made of fiberglass with a silver mirror plating finish, the sculpture varies in 3 colors: original, violet and blue, with only 3 pieces in the world.
