“Eat them burgers, for fast food is the fastest path to the Pure Land” – Hambuddha
From the brilliant mind of Hong Kong artist Tik Ka From East, comes Hambuddha, originating from his “Eat Good West” painting series. This concept came from the artist’s idea that fast food is responsible for speeding up our journey to Sukhāvatī, the Pure Land, which is the place that we go to after we pass away.
Hambuddha may look like a regular Buddha sculpture from the back, with a halo around his head, but turn him around and you’ll be surprised! He wears clown-like makeup and has bright red hair, reminding us of a famous fast-food mascot. He holds a pearl-shaped hamburger in his hand.

【TikKa from East】Growing up in the Hong Kong colonial era, Tik Ka absorbed European, American & Japanese cultures including comic books, movies, music and food culture, whilst, at the same time, having a traditional Chinese background. With such a culture mixed background, Tik Ka has created his Pop-Art Creation called “Tik Ka From East” – all works and series are painted in the style of ancient Chinese art with a special culture blend. One of his inspired series – “Super Hero meet Chinese Opera”- was highly acclaimed by international media and personal including Stan Lee (Marvel Chairman & Director) and Robert Downey Jr.
【Chizi by Tik Ka】 – Tik Ka’s early work infused the Japanese “Kawaii” style into traditional Chinese new year paintings – creating the “So Ha” (infant) series. The subject and tone illustrate a colourful, artless utopia as a way to explore humanity through the eyes of a child. Continuing to explore his boundaries, Tik Ka incorporated Chinese and Western influences and aesthetics, developing the series “ChiZi”. The dreamy, soft colours used in “ChiZi” – its subtle, muted tones contrast with the vibrant and luxuriant “So Ha” series. It is Tik Ka’s hope to share with the world “ChiZi’s” innocence, and undamaged essence of humanity.
