McDull here he comes

14 January - 23 January

Free

EVENT DESCRIPTION

Created in the late 1980s, McMug and McDull brought joy and inspiration to many generations in Hong Kong. Appearing in comic strips and animations, the ingenuous piglet duo charmed us with their optimistic approaches to life, all of which have become beloved all-time classics. The iconic cartoon series created a unique yet heartening legacy with their undertone of innocent playfulness, a touch of the ordinary, yet with a certain poetic essence.

Marking the first collaboration between Sotheby’s Hong Kong and the masterminds of the series, Mr. Brian Tse and Ms. Alice Mak, ‘McDull here he comes’ features 47 artworks presented in various media, ranging from original drawings, reinterpretations of classic stories to animated NFT artwork.

Auction preview will take place at Sotheby’s Hong Kong Gallery from 14 – 23 January 2022, and online bidding will open on 14 January. (Pre-registration is required for entry. Successful registrants will receive an email confirmation, and admission is subject to presentation of confirmation email).

Annie Wong, Specialist, Fine Chinese Paintings, Sotheby’s Hong Kong, expresses: “We are excited to work with Mr. Brian Tse and Ms. Alice Mak to bring this auction to life, celebrating the new year with the gleeful spirit of McMug and McDull. We look forward to welcoming visitors to the magical world of McDull, and through the inspiring artworks, inviting them to rediscover the simple joy of life.
