Bamboo Supports



In China, when there is construction being done, all the scaffolding is made with bamboo poles. Entire buildings are wrapped in a matrix of artistically placed tree trunks. Hong Kong also has an abundance of old metal signage with neon tubes on them. They are old and decaying like old motel signs on route 66 in America. They're quite gorgeous too. So one doesn't fall off a building, they are in a constant state of repair. The bamboo structures are cobbled together rather rapidly. Workers keep scampering higher as they tie the poles together at the joints. As I came upon them, I felt like they were huge public works of art done by some mad genius. Kongers were amazed that I chose something so difficult to draw and paint. Sometimes in trying to tell the story of a place I visit, the scene I am going to draw chooses me. When I saw this, I knew I had to capture it, no matter how difficult the task. My back is killing me but I'm glad I did it. this one happens to be an old Pawn Shop sign.
