Originally scheduled for a showcasing in March - when ABHK would have taken place, were it not for the fifth wave - the pieces were commissioned in November. Following submission, the artworks were turned into a high-resolution image and digitally adjusted to fit the tram's facade, taking into account windows and doors.

Wong's contribution to the project depicts the Star Ferry surfing Katsushika Hokusai's most iconic woodblock print. Shum executed a cryptic work created with ink, color and silver leaf on paper, titled Why You Always Be Here and Watch; while Cheuk applied two paintings from her latest ink-on-silk collection onto her tram. The series is themed around local bird species, and features retro Hong Kong details including a vintage toy and game as well as mosaic tiles typical of Hong Kong teahouses.
