Heavily influenced by both Hong Kong’s Umbrella Movement in 2014 and the election of it 2017 Chief Executive. Hong Kong Dreams draws on Hong Kong’s battle to stay afloat against the rising tide of China’s influence. The work centres around Disney’s Sleeping Beauty Castle, a building which lies at the centre of Disneyland in Hong Kong. This fairy tale style castle is maintained by commercial fantasy, this mirrors the tale of Hong Kong’s dream to remain independent, as China steadily erodes its freedoms. Clouds appear to either begin to envelope the castle or have been dispersed.

Benjamin Buckley is a London-based artist. He draws in thick black lines reminiscent of and inspired by traditional Chinese & Japanese woodblock prints. Graduating from Camberwell College of Arts London in 2010 Benjamin has gone on to show continuously through out his career to date.
Benjamin's compositions reveal a world in constant overflow – of architectural marvels, with Americana, Orientalism, commercialism, spirituality, gentrification, the ocean. The landscapes teem with potential stories, from jumbled histories, to mysterious recent events. See smoke coming from a chimney, a rubber ring sailing by, clothes hung up to dry and it seems possible that the inhabitants have just stepped out of sight, as in a western or samurai film, just before the climactic battle.
With almost immediate gallery representation from his exit from art University in 2010 Benjamin was selected as one of top 10 emerging artists in the UK 2013 by prestigious Affordable Art Fair founder and renowned Art Critic - Will Ramsay. Voted by the London Metro 2013 as one of the most up and coming artists to invest in Benjamin has gone on to show his works at exhibitions such as the RA Summer Exhibition and Grand Designs Live Birmingham as well as multiple group and solo shows across the UK and Europe.'
