Explore Urban Masterpieces with Hong Kong’s Best Street Art and Graffiti 

From forgotten walls and underpasses to facades and tucked-away spots, street art and graffiti have long been a familiar part of the city’s urban landscape. 

And hey, before you start calling it “vandalism,” let’s set the record straight: the ones we featured were made with permission and created by a circle of highly skilled artists, so everything’s legal here!

Now, are you ready to explore the best ones? Great, because we’ve rounded them up for you already! Here’s a look at Hong Kong’s vibrant street art and graffiti. Let’s see how many you recognize!

Location: Hong Kong, Sai Ying Pun, Chung Ching St, 8號奇靈里石棧里 ONE ARTLANE, SHOP NO.2 & 2A 

How to get here: If you’re coming from Central, take the Island Line MTR and get off at Sai Ying Pun Station. Take Exit B3 and start exploring alleyways full of colorful murals. 

Hong Kong might look like a boring concrete jungle at first glance, but let me tell you – once you know where to look, you’ll realize it’s not just another stone-cold city. Sai Ying Pun’s Art Lane is a good starting point! 

Art Lane is part of the neighborhood revitalization project that was initiated by Henderson Land, a property developer in China and Hong Kong. 

With more than 10 pieces of art scattered around Ki Ling Lane, Chung Ching Street, and Shek Chan Lane, Sai Ying Pun was then known as a “mural village.” The lineup of murals here is mostly inspired by street art from New York, London, and Seoul. 

There’s no shortage of Instagrammable spots but if you want ideas, try the vibrant rainbow staircase and the larger-than-life mural of a young girl watering plants.

Location: Tai Ping Building, Shop D, G/F, 22-24A Tai Ping Shan St, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong 

How to get here: From Central, take the Island Line MTR and ride it until you reach Sheung Wan Station. Take Exit A2 and keep walking until you reach the Tai Ping Shan Building. 

Craftissimo is a quirky little bar that’s popular for its great selection of craft beers. But it’s not just the cold booze that keeps customers flocking back to this place. 

You see, even though it’s tucked away in an alley off Tai Ping Shan Street, you can’t really miss it because of the eye-catching murals adorning its walls. 

The 90s-inspired cartoon art outside Craftissimo features a funky-looking bear holding some flowers, colorful little monsters chilling out together, and a cute green-haired girl coming out of a tree trunk. 

Mooncasket, the illustrator behind this street art, incorporated elements of nature into this mural. We think it really fits the garden-like vibe outside Craftissimo, so it’s a nice spot to unwind and hang out with friends.

Location: 26 Square St, Tai Ping Shan, Hong Kong 

How to get here: Take the Island Line MTR at Central Station and get off at Sheung Wan Station. Take exit A2 and walk until you reach Square Street. 

If you’ve ever walked along the alleyways of Square Street in Tai Ping Shan, you probably came across the lineup of artworks stretched out on the street’s low walls. 

On the wall of Rich View Terrace A, the one facing Square Street, you can find the famous work of Jurne (a California-based artist) and Antoine (a France-based graffiti artist). 

This massive mural showcases Jurne’s signature style, which technically is just his name spelled out and mixed with geometric shapes filled with an eye-catching color palette of blue, yellow, and red. 

Meanwhile, on the other side, you’ll find the mural titled Mind Temple. Lauren YS (a Los Angeles-based artist), along with other artists, created this art. This mural has two themes – the importance of mental health and Lauren’s twin sister’s experience living and working in Hong Kong.

Location: The Mills, 45 Pak Tin Par St, Tsuen Wan, Hong Kong

How to get here: From Central Station, take the Tsuen Line MTR and get off at Tsuen Wan Station Exit A2. Walk along the Hoi Kwai Road until you reach the covered flyovers at Tai Chung Road. Walk a bit more until you find The Mill’s entrance at Pak Tin Par Street. 

The Mills and all the unnamed artworks that surround Par Tin Par Lane are part of the landmark revitalization project in Tsuen Wan. 

This cultural and retail hub depicts the artful contrast between the cityscapes and the overgrown greenery surrounding the area. It’s like a paradox between an abandoned place and a new thriving environment, and this shows in the murals and graffiti too, so it’s quite interesting. 

The walls surrounding The Mills are dotted with a range of murals. Some of the notable radical art forms you can find here are titled – The Past and Future of The Mills, Cat’s Cradle, The Passage of Time, The Spinning Female Worker, Continuity, and Overgrown. 

E. Tat Factory Building

Artist: Spok Brillor 

Location: 4 Heung Yip Rd, Wong Chuk Hang, Hong Kong 

How to get here: Take the South Island Line at Central Station and get off at Wong Chuk Hang Station. Get out at Exit B and walk until you reach the Heung Yip Road. 

Wong Chuk Hang was once a dreary gray district filled with boring industrial blocks and office buildings. 

But thanks to the HKWalls Festival in 2017, the district was transformed into an artsy enclave. Now, it features numerous eclectic and impressive murals etched on the walls of the E. Tat Factory Building and other establishments in the area. 

One of the most-visited murals here is the intergalactic dragon-snake hybrid coiled on a giant hand on the side of the factory. It was created by a Spanish artist named Spok Brillor. 

You can’t miss this one because of the bold use of colors and hyper-realistic features of the dragon-snake hybrid. Plus, of course, it’s absurdly massive!

On the corner next to it, you can also see a rustic and poignant portrait of a lady created by the stencil artist duo SNIK. This artwork will be right up your alley if you appreciate the dark and emo aesthetic because the lady is somewhat melancholic, and everything’s painted in black and teal. 

Uma Nota

Artist: Elsa Jean de Dieu 

Location: Upper G/F, 38 Peel St, Central, Hong Kong 

How to get here: Take the Central Mid-Levels Escalator and get off at Cochrane Street. Turn left onto Gage Street and continue walking until you reach Lyndhurst Terrace. After that, turn left onto Graham Street and turn right onto Staunton Street. Continue walking until you reach Peel Street. 

When you dine at Uma Nota, a Brazilian-Japanese restaurant, don’t miss the chance to strike a pose at the radiant and colorful murals on its exterior facade and staircase. 

You see, aside from tasty Brazilian and Japanese cuisine, this restaurant also serves rustic and intricately crafted street art that definitely makes people stop and stare. 

The Laughing Ladies, as we like to call it, exudes the lively and fun side of Central. It’s a go-to photo spot for the customers dining in the restaurant. 

The amazing artworks featured in Uma Nota are created by a well-known Hong Kong-based artist, Elsa Jean de Dieu. You can easily recognize her works because she always blends bold colors and patterns and incorporates realism into them. 

The sad part is that photos don’t really do these murals justice. That’s why you have to see them in person! 

Tank Lane

Location: Tank Lane, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong 

How to get here: Take the Island Line MTR at Central Station and get off at Sheung Wan Station. Take exit A2 and walk until you reach Tank Lane, which cuts across Bridges Street, Square Street, and Hollywood Road. 

The district of Sheung Wan is best known for its fair share of vintage stores, art galleries, and cute cafes, but there’s more to it than what meets the eye. 

If you take the time to explore its alleyways, you can find an impressive collection of street art that are perfect backdrops to make your Instagram posts more interesting. 

Are you a fan of Bruce Lee? Visit the larger-than-life mural of the local icon at the staircase of Tank Lane. This eclectic mosaic portrait of Bruce Lee was created by the South Korean graffiti artist  Xeva. 

Just a few steps away from it, you can find the striking works of Pasha Wais and Alex Croft. Both artists seemed to enjoy playing with geometric shapes and dazzling colors, so a trip here is truly a pleasing feast for the eyes. 

Graham Street

Artist: Alex Croft 

Location: 46-54 Graham St, Central, Hong Kong

How to get here: If you’re coming from Queen’s Road Central, just walk until you reach D’Aguilar Street, then turn right onto Stanley Street. Continue walking until you reach Wellington Street and continue straight on Lyndhurst Terrace. Turn right once you reach Graham Street. 

Alex Croft is a famous artist who shares the tale of the city’s unmatched artistic history and culture through street art. 

Graham Street’s walls are one of his favorite canvases. The walls here are like Hong Kong’s designated Instagram Wall. 

Perhaps the most visited piece here is the cluster of whimsical old-world homes. This mural is like a snapshot of the city’s history. 

You see, it depicts the city’s tenement buildings, or “shoebox housing,” as locals like to call them. Even if Hong Kong is now known as a modern and progressive city, it’s still refreshing to see the other side of the coin through art, don’t you reckon?  

The Leather Factory

Location: Wing on Street, Peng Chau, Hong Kong 

How to get here: From Central Pier No.6, take a ferry at MTR Hong Kong Station and get off at Peng Chau. After that, walk along the Peng Chau Family Walk trail until you reach Wing on Street. 

If you’re heading over to Peng Chau Island, make sure to drop by The Leather Factory. Well, the place used to be an actual leather factory, but it was transformed into a rustic and quirky art space. 

Now, locals and tourists also call this factory the “Secret Garden.” Amidst the old-world charm of Peng Chau, you can easily spot the burst of color and unique art installations down Wing On Street. 

Check out the graffiti and the ever-changing upcycled art installations here, like the hanging vases and a tower of painted chairs. Definitely an interesting place to visit.

Kam Tin Mural Village 



  • Kwok Yin-ming 
  • Other local artists 

Location: 錦田市 中心, Yuen Long District, Hong Kong 

How to get here: From the Central Station, take the Tuen Ma Line and get off at the West Rail Line at Kam Sheung Road Station. Take Exit B and cross the overhead bridge. Continue walking until you reach the Kam Sheung Road and see the lineup of murals. 

In a city where walls speak with color, Kam Tin Mural Village is a hotspot you shouldn’t miss. This historic walled village showcases hand-painted murals that highlight the local culture and indigenous history of the place uniquely and artistically. 

As you walk along the Kam Sheung Road, you can see surreal and dreamlike renderings of village life on fences, shutters, and facades. On some walls, you can also find murals showing cute, cheeky cats and other animals playing around. 

What sets these murals apart from others is that Kwok Yin-ming, together with his talented young students, worked together to create this masterpiece. Each piece is a testament to the community’s hard work and creativity. 

Man Yee Wan Recreation Centre

  • Wong Ting Fung 
  • Elsa Jean de Dieu

Location: 25 Man Nin St, Sai Kung, Hong Kong

How to get here: If you’re coming from Central, take the Tsuen Wan Line and get off at Mong Kok Station. After that, proceed to Dundas Street and ride a red minibus that will take you to Sai Kung. Walk towards PoTung Road and Manin Street until you reach Man Yee Wan Recreation Centre. 

Sai Kung is a popular getaway spot in the New Stories. But guess what? Aside from the pristine beaches, you can also surf the sea of artwork hidden on its streets. 

Let’s start with the mural in Man Yee Wan Recreation Centre. Elsa Jean de Dieu painted the whimsical-looking creature on the building’s facade. 

Just like her work at Uma Nota, you can see how Elsa enjoys playing with a bunch of quirky shapes and vibrant colors to create a unique piece of art. 

Meanwhile, if you’re in the Man Yee Playground, you can check out the abstract mural created by Wong Ting Fung. The Hong Kong-based illustrator used Chinese characters, geometric shapes, and a playful mix of colors inspired by the Tin Hau Temple in her mural. 

Anyway, if you’re in the playground, don’t forget to explore its neighboring streets because they also feature murals made by artists like Kristopher Ho, Neil Wang, Zoie Lam, and Carol Bellese Choi. 

Just keep your eyes sharp because some murals are in hidden laneways. If you don’t look closely, you might walk past these artworks without sparing a second glance.
