Shin Hing Street
Dr Sun Yat-sen, Yau Lit, Chan Siu-pak and Yeung Hok-ling were called the “Four Great Outlaws”. The artwork, about 5 meters in height, showcases the aspiration of the “Four Great Outlaws” in artistic form.
When Dr Sun Yat-sen was studying medicine in Hong Kong, he often met with his close friends Yau Lit, Chan Siu-pak and Yeung Hok-ling at Yeung Yiu Kee, the shop owned by Yeung Hok-ling’s family, at 8 Gough Street, where they were able to talk freely about the politics and anti-Qing revolutionary cause. As their views violated traditional mindset, they were called the “Four Great Outlaws”.
Failure makes a rebel, success a prince;
Four people used to discuss overthrowing the Qing government and advocating for the Republic at this place;
Putting words into action, a new country emerged.
