m+ is now holding an online exhibition called neonsigns.hk. it stirs back my interest to pay attention to these almost outdated commercial artform.
i am a day person. that means i have much lesser chance to appreciate the full beauty of neon light. to my surprise, i spotted a lighted neon sign around noon time at sheung wan this past sunday.
oriental watch is an old chain of watches shop in hong kong. this particular store could be the oldest in the chain, dated back to 1961.
the neon sign reflects the honesty and down-to-earth style of shops back in the mid-20th century.
