The Death of a King

Hong Kong's original graffitist, the King of Kowloon (or Emperor), has died at the age of 85.

Such a shame since we had still wanted to interview him for "Tagspotting." But it was good to see him talking on Ben's Pearl Report on the topic.

Can you believe his work's been sold on Sotheby's? I better bring a jackhammer and dig out his work for myself! I believe there's one piece at the TST Star Ferry pier that's being preserved.
