"I named myself anothermountainman, after a famous Chinese painter (Bada Shanren) who I respect. My only strength is visual communication, so I thought about what my message would be. I decided on “human harmony, the city in harmony.”
Graduated from Hong Kong Technical Teachers’ College (Design & Technology), anothermountainman (Stanley Wong) is a renowned designer and contemporary artist.
