A book of sketches of the 2019 pro-democracy protests by local artist Fong So will not be distributed in Hong Kong for fear of the national security law, the artist told HKFP, saying freedom of the press and artistic expression are being eroded in the city.

The work “A Defiant City: 239 sketches of Hong Kong’s mass protest movement 2019-20,” includes sketches of pro-democracy marches from June 2019 up to the following January.

The 70-year-old artist told HKFP the book’s production was delayed for ten months after being stalled by the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic and the passing of the Beijing-imposed national security law last June.
