Rob Kidney’s ‘Hong Kong Garden’ to open September 22

Rob Kidney’s debut Hong Kong solo exhibition, titled ‘Hong Kong Garden’, will open with an invite-only reception on September 22 in Perks Souvenir Store.

Curated by SOCIAL NERD and co-organised by PERKS PRODUCTION and Kidney’s Tokyo-based WISH LESS Gallery, ‘Hong Kong Garden’ will be open to the public from September 23 through October 15.

The British-born, Tokyo-based artist, who works with pen, spray paint, and acrylic, is known for creating characters alongside a kawaii, Harajuku-inspired aesthetic.

The single will be available as a limited-edition hand-painted (by Kidney) lathe cut on transparent 10” vinyl, as well as on all digital platforms, such as Bandcamp and Juno.
