Where the Journey Ends

What is life? People continually keep asking and thinking about this problem. The hero of the story is no exception.

Vitaliy Neverov, a 29-year-old man from Russia, came to Hong Kong five months ago and has been drawing spray paintings on the crowded streets at Mongkok since then. Spray paint art is an art form using spray paint to draw rather than any pencils, pens or brushes and it is often done by artists with speed. Due to these characteristics, Vitaliy succeeds in attracting attention from passersby soon. Not only many people upload photos and videos of him to Facebook and Twitter, but also someone pays for his drawings.

Typically, Vitaliy’s paintings feature surreal landscapes of planets, comets, pyramids, cities, and nature scenes, and many scenes and locations are just that he had experienced personally before. Before arriving in Hong Kong, he travelled to Mainland China, Taiwan, Macau, Thailand, Malaysia, Laos and South Korea. Without camera, he chose to draw what he saw to save pictures of those beautiful places。

Before one year, Vitaliy worked as an interior designer in Moscow. Just like most office workers, he just  “work, work and work” every day at that time. He was too tired and jaded to continue living in the dull machinery of life. And he started getting doubts, “Is it life?” “No, it is not the life for me”, because everyone has only one life and only one chance to do all the things he or she wants to do. So he quitted his job and started travelling around the world.

Vitaliy likes Hong Kong, but Hong Kong is not the destination. In the near future, he wants to travel in Mexico and other countries in South America.

Where will his journey end? Vitaliy doesn’t know, and nobody knows.

This series of pictures show a one-day life of a shop assistant in HK. Her name is Qin Xue. She is 46 years old. She works in Tai Wai, a Chinese Baker House named Bao Dian Liao Li. The shop opened in June, 2014. She works here since the shop opened. She works about 11 hours a day. She lives in Choi Hung, which is far from the work place. She was pretty shy when I try to get the permission to take the pictures for her. She said she is just an ordinary person. She said she regretted not to study hard when she was a student. We can know the story of a laboring person in HK from the pictures.
