When Tony first came to Hong Kong, he had a bit of an identity crisis. The uncertainty of moving coupled with the overwhelmingly urban environment made him worry he would be lost amidst the skyscrapers. Through his discovery and exploration of the Sham Shui Po art scene, he discovered a brand new side to the district, and indeed a newfound appreciation of the city. Tony Yang was born in Beijing, but began moving back and forth between Beijing and abroad since the age of 4. He has lived in the cities of Beijing, Washington D.C., Pretoria, and now Hong Kong. These experiences have made him fluent in both English and Mandarin, having used both in school settings. Through his travels, he has learned to appreciate the unique culture and beauty of each place he’s visited, which was why he was drawn to the street art of Sham Shui Po, as he believed a new lens to view Hong Kong through. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
