However I apologise to all art journalist in Hong Kong and art fans who wanted to ask Mr.Kapoor more about his works, but as he said in most of his speeches and artist talks, he has nothing to say as an artist. Moreover, I think I am the one who understood exactly that. So as a fan of contemporary art, I can offer more insight on art and philosophy of making art to all art journalist in Hong Kong.”
