The Prophecy of Crime and Punishment in Hong Kong "Hong Kong Crime and Punishment" is a work by Hou Junming in 1996, not a recent creation in 2019. Although "Hong Kong Crime and Punishment" may make people think that it was made in response to the current situation in Hong Kong, it should be emphasized again that it is a print published by Hou Junming in 1996 before Hong Kong's return to Hong Kong in 1997, rather than a recent creation inspired by the current situation in Hong Kong.
However, the scene in it can almost be telemarketing list said to accurately describe the current situation in Hong Kong, which is shocking, and makes people feel that Hou Junming's prediction is accurate. Hou Junming posted this piece on his Facebook page just as the protest movement over the anti-extradition issue in Hong Kong was surging recently. I think Hou Junming didn't want to use this to show that his predictions were accurate, but rather that he wanted to use this work to show solidarity with the people of Hong Kong, expressing that he was on the same side as them.
Perhaps it was this empathy that led him to create this set of prints in 1996, wanting to remind Hong Kong people of their inevitable fate in the future. Hou Junming has objectivity because he is an outsider from Taiwan, so he can make such predictions. In addition, there is also Hou Junming's keenness as an artist, grasping the core structural factors, knowing the inevitable future destiny of Hong Kong people, and describing it in advance, in order to make them alert.
