Tsang Tsou-choi or also know as the “The King of Kowloon” was one of Hong Kong’s top graffiti artists until he died in 2007. His “calligraphy graffiti” is still scattered around the territory that he claimed belonged to his ancestors. Lampposts, utility boxes, pillars, pavements, street furniture, and building walls to an occasional car all got the mark of Tsang Tsou-choi. If you analyse the content it usually mentiones his name, his title (Emperor or King of Kowloon, Hong Kong, or China), his family tree (a variable list of about 20 individuals), the names of illustrious emperors, and the exclamation, “Down with the Queen of England!” comic images via virabong
