At our Shoreditch flagship, we continued to collaborate with street art talent on our Door No.30 art series.
This January we have been lucky enough to join forces with London-based illustrator and street artist Hin, a celebrated 'contradiction' artist who originally hails from Hong Kong. Hin's work has been exhibited in Miami, Amsterdam, France, Brussels and Asia. We find out more about his inspirations and “A Real Clown” which can be viewed at our flagship (30, Redchurch St).

Can you tell us about yourself and your artistic style?
I am very immature & unpredictable. I am like a badly raised kid trapped inside an adult's body and my work reflects that very much.
What influences your art?
All the information I gathered in my life. Especially the little voices that keep talking non-stop inside my head.

What is the story of your work on door 30 and does it have any meaning behind it?
"A Real Clown" makes himself feel happy not the others.
How do you ‘Escape the Ordinary’ in your day to day life?
Music, films and count my breathing.
What advice would you give to aspiring artists?
Don't waste time blaming the world, constant self reflection (NOT criticism) and most importantly, work work work work work.

What is your favourite European destination and why?
South of France. Full of sun light. Seems like you're in the middle of nowhere but it's actually full of hidden master artists.
Which is your favourite Western Assembly brand?
I can't say a favourite but I like some accessories from Hanska. Clothes ... L'Homme Rouge and La Paz
What influences what you wear?
My state of mind and how much money I have.
