The piece reads 'King' in Mandarin, and is artist Xeme's tribute to the King of Kowloon, a Hong Kong street writing calligraffiti legend who began to mark the streets with his distinctive style in his 30s. The King of Kowloon obsessively marked the area, claiming Kowloon belonged to his grandfather. Xeme's tribute piece is quite iconic, being one of the first writers in Asia to use the Chinese language in graffiti.
