Meet friends at Art Park

Central Station | 17 Sep 2021

Get some love and fun from the characters created by the pop art duo FriendsWithYou - 12 inflatable installations are on display at the West Kowloon Cultural District's Art Park from next Thursday.

The characters will include Little Cloud, more than three stories high and longer than a bus, and Rainbow, larger than a minibus. New characters Jelly and Rainbow Worm will also make their debut in the park.

The Hong Kong Space Museum will also show the smiley faces of the characters on its exterior wall. They appear virtually from next Thursday at six locations, including the Yau Ma Tei Fruit Market and the Avenue of Stars. Visitors will be able to scan QR codes at these places to get a selfie with them.

FriendsWithYou was created by Samuel Borkson from the US and Arturo Sandoval III from Cuba in 2002.

The characters visited Hong Kong attractions earlier, including riding on trams and the Star Ferry. The Hong Kong Tourism Board has put videos online for people unable to visit the city.
