Earlier this month, the UK-based INSA returned to Hong Kong for a set of murals at The Vaford Gates in Chai Wan. If you remember, the street artist know for his heel motifs had a show in the city-state in 2011 at the Above Second Gallery. The project at this former old factory building location plans to feature a rotating cast of local and international artist so we’ll be sure to see more action soon… Discuss INSA here.

Tomorrow, March 29th, at the Londonewcastle Project Space, a special one night only showing of an installation from INSA will be opening its doors to the public. As you can see from the photos above (by Ian Cox), the experience will prove to be immersive and somewhat disconcerting for the viewer as the walls, ceiling, and floor are wrapped with some of the UK-based artist’s signature imagery. Self Reflection is greater than Self Projection reiterates issues of the female body and commodity fetishism that is often […]

While in Hong Kong for his show at Above Second (covered), INSA found plenty of time for two of his loves, eating and painting. For some of the murals (like the one above), he collaborated with local artist Xeme, whose Chinese calligraphy were tributes to the now deceased Hong Kong OG graffiti legend, Tsang Tsaou Choi, aka “King of Kowloon”. More pics INSA sent us after the jump…
