Chinese Zodiac Animals - Kung Hei Fat Choi


I just finished painting all the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac in time to welcome the New Year of the Pig on the 1st of February. Every year the decorations and atmosphere to receive the New Year in the Chinese calendar is very spectacular here in Hong Kong and I couldn’t help but to feel festive and join in.

I added my own twist on each animal by using very bright colours (but not red), adding floral designs as well as some elements of traditional Chinese paper-cutting. I added the names of the animals in Latin because I was watching Fantastic Mr. Fox by Wes Anderson and Mr. Fox knew the names of all the animals in Latin and I thought that it was very cool!

I was born in the year of the tiger in case you’re interested. What about you? What animal are you? Let me know in the comments below.

Kung Hei Fat Choi - 恭喜發財!
