Print shop is something quite common in the Western world, but it took me some serious research to locate one in Hong Kong. Tucked away in the tranquil terrace of Sau Wa Fong in Wan Chai, Odd One Out, a business combining the concepts of a print shop, a cafe and an art boutique, has offers something quite unique to offer to the city’s art lovers. Founded by ex-printmakers and passionate print collector Phemie Cheng in early 2013, the business has successfully matched the demand from existing print buyers and developed its new clientele in Hong Kong.
Bridging the massive gap between expensive original art pieces and movie posters, limited edition prints are something quite exquisite to own but still easy on the wallet. Odd One Out has a fine selection of prints by international artists, prices range between HKD600 to HKD 3,500. The owner of Odd One Out organizes themed exhibition with artists from all over the world, including the very recent 3D exhibition curated by UK based designer/illustrator Stephen Chan. Apart from limited edition prints, Odd One Out also offers a selection of covetable ceramics by Melody Rose and Mellow Ware and some very witty greeting cards.
If you are looking to purchase a print, make sure to ask Phemie or the friendly staff there for framing options. And… these are our top picks.
