When we hear of street art lanes anywhere when travelling abroad, we usually end up squeezing it into our itineraries. The hidden wall in Mongkok was indeed very hidden. But we’re glad we found it in the end.
This stretch of wall was right behind the Mongkok MTR Station. It’s in a nameless lane literally between a building and the train tracks. You’d have to walk eastward on Argyle St, just before Luen Wan street. It’s too easy to miss it as there are no sign of any graffiti at the walls nearest to the main road, but as you explore a little further, the colours start bursting through.
You’d pass by the occasional homeless person, or a busker practising his music. But the art is what you’re really here for.
