專訪Street Artist Caratoes:塗出街頭優雅

The misconception about graffiti artists and street artists is that [they’re] people who look dirty, look like they haven’t washed themselves, all the girls looking manly or whatever… I don’t like stereotyping, so that’s why whenever I paint, I do want to look as elegant as I can be even though my clothes will get splattered.

來自街頭的故事,應該走到街頭裏去聽。這天,HOKK fabrica與她相約在太平山街,一條位於上環世外桃源「PoHo區」的主要街道。她,外表超酷、爽朗、有性格。長長的 ombré hair刻意撥到右邊,露出左邊的剷青,並隱約看到左耳後的菱形紋身。這種不對稱和不規律,好像在告訴我們她的我行我素。她,就是Caratoes,一位本地street artist/muralist。

Caratoes Hong Kong Street artist

Caratoes長於比利時,父母是香港人,大約一年半前踏足香港開展尋根之旅。「鬼妹仔」的性格,華人的外表,相信在多元文化中成長所經歷過的衝突和碰撞,都成為了她創作的養分。無論是塗鴉或是壁畫,細緻的筆觸,複雜的線條,勾畫出幽暗、脆弱、不安、自傲、感性、平靜與沈鬱;筆下的女性人物(有時還會出現寵物貓),彷彿反映畫家複雜的內心世界。

Where to find her works:
PoHo, Sai Street, Tung Street, Water Lane, Chachawan, Fatty Crab, Facebook Office Hong Kong,
