必携本のVOICES(声)は、香港の抗議活動から生まれ出たイラスト、スローガン、詩を集めた作品集だ。50名の匿名のアーティストによる作品集。
6月に行われた最初の大規模な抗議集会から、路上で次々と展開されるドラマに香港のアーティストたちは創造的なひらめきを見出し、ポスターアートや落書き、広東語の言葉遊び、インターネットで広まっているミーム画像など、人々の苦悩や怒り、不安を、作品の中で視覚的に表現した。深い暗闇の中にいても、アーティストたちは気晴らしと安心感、勢いを持続させるための活力を人々にもたらした。
利益は慈善活動の寄付に充てています。

A companion book, VOICES, is a collection of the artwork, slogans and verse spawned by the Hong Kong protest movement.
From the very beginning of the protests with the first mass rally in June, Hong Kong’s artists have found creative inspiration in the drama unfolding in the streets, and their work has in turn given visual expression to the people’s anguish, anger and anxiety — through poster art, graffiti, Cantonese wordplay and widely shared internet memes. At some of the darkest moments, artists have provided levity and relief, and the added fuel to keep the momentum alive.
VOICES chief editor is the Hong Kong artist known by his pen name Childe Abaddon, one of the lead artists for the Lennon Wall at Kwai Fong.

Childe Abaddon (Editor) started his advertising career in the 1990s, starting as a Visualiser and becoming a Creative Director before venturing out in 2007 to establish his own boutique advertising agency and creative studio, which has worked with some of Hong Kong’s best known brands. He has also worked as producer and marketing director for the online gaming industry, establishing gaming platforms in Hong Kong and Taiwan. As a concerned citizen and social activist, he began helping candidates in the 2012 Legislative Council Assistance Project, and in June of this year began creating realistic style illustrations that became well known when they were exhibited on the Lennon Walls that sprouted up in districts across Hong Kong.
