For the first time, Secret Walls added Hong Kong to its list of cities this year. Started in Shoreditch London in 2006, Secret Walls pins two artists head-to-head in a 90 minute battle armed with only black markers and acrylic paint.
On August 20th, illustrator Cath Love went up against tattoo artist Wang for Round One of Secret Walls x Hong Kong. With diverse backgrounds came very different styles, which undoubtedly made judging difficult. Nevertheless, Cath came and conquered the battle with her illustration, mocking Wang as a tattoo artist who gives ridiculous tramp stamps to drunk girls. However inaccurate this depiction might have been, it was definitely a crowd pleaser and got Cath the win.
