The 88th Exhibition Eight Designers in Today's Hong Kong August 2 - 28 ,1993

"Eight designers from three decades. This exhibition provides an invaluable opportunity to expose exquisite works of art by these distinguished individuals and truly reflect the evolution that underscores Hong Kong design history. Henry Steiner landed himself as well as his business in the territory early in the 60's. I completed my design course and worked full-time as a designer later in the decade. Alan Chan joined the array in the early 70's. Once the pioneers of the industry and now highly acclaimed artists, our passion for our profession never ceases to increase with the passing of time. Stepping into 80's, design became a hot subject and attracted a lot of enrollment. Lilian Tang, John Au and Jennings Ku were among those being educated abroad but intended to build up their career here. They ushered in an exotic touch to their works so as to bring an air of freshness to the public at large. On the contrary, Freeman Lau and Tommy Li were successful cases with a local education. Armed with incredibly high creative power and marked individuality, they are now the most promising stars in the field. I am glad to have participated in this exhibition and come across with the latest developement in design and its techniques. And I hope it won't be long before it is our turn to host such a kind of meaningful activity."
