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.
