Artists nationwide creating a cartoon world in Hong Kong

An animation exhibition, which is part of the Greater Bay Area Culture and Arts Festival, is underway at the Hong Kong City Hall Exhibition Hall and will last until April 4.

The "Guangdong, Hong Kong, and Macao Outstanding Animation, Comic and Illustration Exhibition" attracted entries from many famous artists across China. With 148 comic and illustration works and 22 animations, the exhibition showcases the country's prosperous development from the perspective of different individuals, wonderful stories in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA), and the image of Loong (Chinese dragon) as the mythical symbol of the Chinese nation.

In addition to comic works, domestic animation works also shine in the exhibition, including I Am What I Am inspired by the lion dance in the Lingnan area, Hong Kong animation series Monsoon Blue, Yao-Chinese Folktales, a new adaptation of Chinese mythological stories, and other well-known animations like Blades of the Guardians and The Outcast.

It is reported that the event has been included in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Culture and Arts Festival for two consecutive years, in 2022 and 2023, being the only animation project of the festival.
