Xiao Pai Long – giclee print

Gong xi fa cai, to celebrate the year of the dog I shall be releasing a series of artwork inspired by Hong Kong cinema. I hope you will enjoy them and perhaps even be inspired to watch some John Woo films!

#1 release version

The working title of this piece was Hong Kong Hipshot, which is still a pretty nice title but I ended up going with Xiao Pai Long which is Cantonese for "Small White Dragon" because of the white dragon graffiti in the background

Actually, it began as a wardrobe test for Hardboiled but it looked so nice I decided to work it up as a standalone piece. I'm a huge fan of Hong Kong cinema in general and John Woo in particular, so this is yet another one of my HK inspired works
