Nathanael Kang

Nathanael Kang is an artist based in Hong Kong. Working primarily in ink and watercolour on paper, he uses his artwork and sketches to cultivate a sense of curiosity and child-like wonder at the world around him, especially of the built environment.
Trained as an architect, Nathanael is interested in how buildings and spaces are inhabited and adapted by users over time. He sees the built environment as a semi-permanent record of the spirit and preoccupations of the past and present age. Living and working in a city that is ceaselessly developing and enarmoured with novelty, he particularly enjoys capturing vernacular buildings and forgotten urban spaces in his artwork, inviting viewers to see their usual surroundings through new eyes.
