Louis To Wun x Tim Chan: Honouring the Past and Inspiring the Future Parade & Music Performance


Inspired by the auspicious beasts closely associated with the Lin Fa Temple, contemporary artist To Wun, Louis has created a new hybrid mythical creature. He skilfully combined traditional bamboo weaving techniques with contemporary painting styles, creating an agile dynamic structure. Through vibrant performances, he infuses his artwork with life, shedding lights on the cultural traditions inherited from the previous generations and spreading the blessing to Tai Hang.

Louis, together with composer and percussionist Tim Chan, will present two parades with the hybrid mythical creature. An interactive session is designed for the audiences to participate in the performance.
