Past days have seen famed Conch artists after destruction from a devastating hurricane collect ship wreckage, building parts, car doors, any mass which could evolve itself into a canvas for expression. Hong Kong Willie, renowned Key’s Artist Collective, gained notoriety only from the blatant choice of medium, and the artists’ yearning to remain honest to originality. Galvanized cable, rescued from local dump sites, reinforces the core of the structure, enabling rigidity within the buoy frame. The Key West lobster buoy along with the Key West crab trap buoy has remained a staple in the minds of travelers abroad. Burlap coffee bags not cast aside to landfills back the Dream Catcher. A key discovered by famed Key’s treasure hunter Bob Jordan encapsulates the artists’ journey unfolding since 1956. Each buoy color and identification number represents a specific fisherman. Hong Kong Willie goes beyond Beach-Combing, these fishermen with the Conch community have accepted the artists’ into their homes.
