Lunar New Year at The QVB
26 Jan 2019
2019 promises to be an auspicious year, as the pig represents success in all avenues of life. To see your hopes realised, we invite you to share your wishes, which will be displayed beneath the dome.
In China, wishing trees have been visited by hopeful individuals for hundreds of years. Local superstition says wishes made at specific trees would be granted. Over time, they developed mythic status among locals. Now it’s your turn to share your wishes for the coming year at the QVB Wishing Tree.
On Level 2, you’ll find the QVB Wishing Station, where you can place your wishes. While there, visit one of many rotating pop-ups, including a custom letterpress where you’ll receive a complimentary LNY piglet print to take home – select times only. UnionPay members can also pick up their commemorative Swarovski® Crystal Coin here.

The QVB Lunar New Year artwork has been created by Lisk Feng. Lisk is an illustrator based in Queens, New York. Her work sings with whimsy and fantasy, often featuring characters in a narrative setting. Both her parents are artists and so readily encouraged Lisk to pursue her passion. She studied at China Academy of Art and Maryland Institute College of Art, graduating in 2014. Her first big break was illustrating a children’s book for Flying Eye Books, the children’s imprint of London’s Nobrow Press. She’s since gone on to have her work featured in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal. Recent commissions include Chanel, Apple, Airbnb. Lisk draws inspiration from old novels and kids’ books, plus animator Hayao Miyazaki and manga artist Sakura Momoko. Her childhood was one filled with comics and manga, which also influence her work.
