Mak Ying-tung's Single Life

Hong Kong artist Mak Ying-tung’s latest YouTube series, Single Life, may at first appear to be a form of break-up therapy, but the idea was born more of a desire to be productive during a self-imposed coronavirus lockdown.
“One day I napped for way too long, woke up and had the urge to create something. I recently ended a relationship, and thought this was a great time to get back out there,” says the 30-year-old artist, who goes by the name Mak Ying Tung 2 in the art world because a fortune-teller once told her the “2” would bring her fame and fortune.
She called up a primary-school classmate whom she hadn’t spoken to in at least 10 years, and decided to ask him out and film the whole date.
“I was really nervous when I called initially,” recalls Mak, “but more excited and curious about what the outcome would be.”
