Spencer Fung: Achitect and Artist, London UK
Spencer Fung is a man of many talents. Architect, draughtsman, designer, painter, writer, craftsman – it seems there is nothing he cannot turn his hand to. Born in Hong Kong, Spencer grew up on Hoi Sham Island. Nature has always been an important influence in Spencer’s work and he credits his early upbringing on this island for sparking a deep connection. ‘I have vivid memories of playing along the shores, chasing dragonflies with my cousins,’ he says. His home environment was busy and creative. His father worked in the textile trade, and his mother set up her own business from the small flat they lived in, making wedding hats and fascinators on the family dining-room table.
