JOSHUA SMITH - DAI SUM DRIED SEAFOOD
His sculpture ‘Dai Sum Dried Seafood’ located on Des Voeux Road West, has recently torn down.
You can see his exact replica of the building, including the graffiti it is tagged with, the music posters on the walls, every detail is as he saw it.
With over 110,000 followers on instagram and sold out shows across the world this is a great investment piece.
Each section is lazer cut out of 100s of pieces to exactly replicate a street location, building in Hong Kong. The graffiti ‘tags’ are made using stencils and painted by hand. The posters, photos on the buildings are exact replicas.
Joshua only came to Hong Kong for the first time when we brought him for these set of models. He normally makes all his works from photos from artists and google street maps
