Shhh! It’s Shirley.
This charming mural, inspired by Shirley Temple, is in a popular street art area in Hong Kong, known as Art Lane. Street art can now be found up many a lane, on many a wall, around Hong Kong. I suspect, though, that much of its appeal is down to its potential as the colourful background to a selfie.
I certainly wasn’t alone when taking photos of street art, but it was hard to capture the art without the posing people, or without the competing cameras.
This mural was the work of French born artist, Elsa Jean de Dieu, who is now based in Hong Kong. She concentrated initially on interior decoration in Paris, but then moved to Hong Kong as Artistic Director for a local art company, and has now formed her own successful art studio.
