Hatch.hk is a brand new illustration agency representing Hong Kong talent for commissions across Asia and worldwide.
The firm currently represents eight artists – Benny Luk, Calvin Ho, Jack Lee, Toby Yeung, Casper Chan, Johnny Cheuk, PikPik Zoo and Kate Barnett – for advertising, editorial, fashion, music and brand commissions and collaborations. It is the first agency of its kind to launch in Hong Kong.
A launch exhibition, showing work by all the Hatch.hk artists, will run at the Artfinger Gallery in Sheung Wan, Hong Kong from December 11 to 16.
Michael Dorrian, creative director of Hatch.hk says that “Hong Kong is rich in creativity and should be a world centre for art and design. The Hatch.hk artists channel Hong Kong and international influences to create work that is fresh and contemporary, ground-breaking yet accessible. We’re very excited to be able to bring these artists’ work to a wider audience.”
Hatch.hk is backed by international brand consultancy Start Creative.
