The opening ceremony of “The Hong Kong 3D Fantasy Journey” Stereoscopic Art Exhibition in Chongqing was held at the Landmark Riverside Park in Nan’an District on September 10. The exhibition presents the most distinctive tourism and cultural elements of Hong Kong to the audiences via 3D paintings. The exhibition is free to all and will be open till September 21.
The exhibition consists of four sections: Hong Kong cityscape, scenic spots, traditional culture, and cuisine. The design of the stereoscopic paintings adopts the skills of size variation, visual illusion, and shadow paintings to make the 2D drawings into a 3D visual feast. With the help of the auxiliary devices, the visitors pose their body movements and facial expressions according to the situation when taking the photos, making the 3D effect more lifelike. In this way, the city of Hong Kong is presented as the real scene to Chongqing’s visitors.
The works in this art exhibition were created by the founder of Fine Effort Illustration, Mr. Fei Wong, an illustrator from Hong Kong. He traveled the Silk Road as a backpacker when he was younger. In the past ten years, he has worked in or been to Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Wuhan, and Chongqing, and has gained a lot of creative inspiration in mainland China.
“The purpose of presenting the whole exhibition in 3D is to make the exhibition more interactive so that the visitors can take photos and bring more vitality into the exhibition. I hope they can have a deeper understanding of Hong Kong.” Mr. Yang Wong, the curator of the exhibition, said he wanted to “package” the elements of Hong Kong and present them to Chongqing’s citizens in 3D, as many people are stuck at home due to the pandemic restrictions.
“I think the best way to promote Hong Kong in Chongqing is to bring Hong Kong here,” said Li Wan-in, director of the Economic and Trade Office of the Government of the Hong Kong SAR in Chengdu, “we hope that the public can deepen their understanding of Hong Kong through this exhibition, and we welcome more friends from Chongqing to visit Hong Kong when the pandemic’s impact becomes much less.”
