LIMITED PRINT | The Signboard Calligrapher

ADD TO CART
Handcrafted signs once dominated Hong Kong's entire visual landscape, and at the forefront of keeping that dying tradition alive is calligrapher Au Yeung Cheong. The work of Au Yeung, distinguished by his use of Zan Script, still adorns shopfronts and businesses across town. For nearly 40 years, he worked fastidiously from his bastion in a historical building that was shuttered for redevelopment in late 2020. But that hasn't stopped him.

 

「早於80年代起,真體字書法家歐陽昌師傅的招牌作品便穿梭於香港昔日招牌林立、五光十色的霓虹光影之中。隨著社會步入科技化,手書需求大減,歐陽師傅感嘆真體字終將失傳,後繼無人的無奈。「京華招牌」於皇都戲院大廈屹立40年,儘管面對時代變遷,他一直堅守信念,於2020另覓新址,繼續「發光發亮」。
