Opera Gallery Hong Kong presents ‘In Dialogue with Creatives – The Creator of Smiles’ a series of talks to be hosted to gather an insight into local talents. The first edition we invite Elsa Jean de Dieu, the Hong-Kong based French muralist responsible for the larger than life ‘Smile’ portraits that adorn the walls of Hong Kong Central.

Along with the ‘Portrait Show’ presented by Opera Gallery Hong Kong this month, you are invited to join us for talk followed by a short Q&A as we discover how Elsa goes from the theory of a project to the realisation of a mural, discover the process involved in the creation of these murals that have become synonymous with Hong Kong.
