The fascinating thing about art is that its modes of expression and diffusion can be very varied, which makes us find works in less expected places, such as on the blackboard of a school.

A small group of students from the Senegal High School in Hong Kong has been creating wonderful works of art, this through drawings using only colored chalk and all their amazing ability, where the most painful thing is that they are works that are not destined to endure, but to be erased within a few minutes of being completed.


This group of students was born in 2016 and does not have permanent members, but anyone who wants to join by creating a work between classes using the blackboard in their classroom is welcome. This is how several have passed through this select group of artists without recognition baptized as ‘Illusdreamer’ , who have barely had the opportunity to take a photo of their works using their mobile, photo that is the only record that there was something memorable.

They know that this art is not destined to last, hence its importance, since it is temporary art that can only be admired by a few, and where interestingly it has not attracted the attention of teachers, since in Hong Kong It has become common to find drawings of this quality on school boards.

But the Illusdreamer are different, they want their art to last at least on the internet. So they take pictures, videos and use social networks to make their drawings known. In them we see from the characters created by Hayao Miyazaki to famous animes, manga and that famous style of Japanese illustration.

The Illusdreamer do not have a fixed goal so far, this despite having received offers to do works and show them in some exhibition, and now they are just looking for fun and show what they are capable as a group, so that there are no faces or individual personalities.
