About Weez Art

The Weez Project believes street art is a powerful way of expressing and promoting mental wellbeing. By partnering with HKWALLS, a non-profit arts organisation, and supported by various artists, several “Weez Art” installations with mental health wellbeing themes will be placed along the coastal trail.

The painting is inspired by a book written by Johann Hari called Lost Connection, in which nine causes for depression and anxiety was addressed by the writer. The painting portrayed a snow leopard, which was often referred to as the loneliest animal in the natural world, constantly living in isolation. Its body was disconnected by nine lines, echoing the idea of the nine causes, and symbolised how an individual suffering from mental health disorders was constantly disconnected from oneself. The flower inside the body symbolises fragility and how vulnerable we are as human beings living in modern society, where we are constantly suppressed and pressured by social and political values.

The art is based on anxiety and how it affects people. It can be devastating and lonely when there is no one to turn to. It’s also about how one should love themselves and be kind to one's self. Fortunately for the subject in this mural, the individual is holding a cell phone and can reach out to others for a lifeline. You can always reach out in times of trouble and get the help that you need.

It is not easy for people who suffer from mental health to open up. The flower represents the deep-rooted internal conflicts of oneself that are hidden from view to the outside world, whereas the outer petals show what’s visible on the surface.

The hands at the base represent the people in our lives that are just within reach, having our backs and are there to support us. The words on the petals are the thoughts we often go through to resonate with viewers.

This piece encourages people to speak, speak to someone who will listen to you and speak what do you have in mind. It could be anything, good things or bad things. Things that make you happy or sad. Big or small, or even weird ideas you dreamt about. Also, speak to yourself, and listen to yourself.

One says she’s trying hard to please others. But two of the petals drop who even notices that? Do you know the whole story? Instead of being judgemental. Sometimes, maybe just a simple greeting would help.

Everyone has a side of fragility. It is an inseparable part of life. There will be ups and downs, like on a hike; you cannot enjoy the maginificent view at the top of the mountain without taking the journey. Learn to live with your fragility and tininess, so you can reorient and recommence against headwinds.

This glass whale is a message that says even if we are flimsy as glass, we can still live a colorful and dynamic life.
