The eccentric Mr. Chow opened restaurants in London, New York, and Beverly Hills in the ’60s and ’70s. Chow’s restaurants have remained A-list hotspots, and through the years the restaurateur has served high-end Chinese cuisine to the likes of Marlene Dietrich, Frank Sinatra, Mick Jagger, Jackie O, George Clooney, and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Now, the face of glamorous Chinese cuisine has taken up a residency in Hong Kong, returning to art after a 50-year sabbatical with Recipe For a Painter at Pearl Lam Galleries, his first solo exhibition.

In the colorful short film above, Brunswick House co-founder and fellow London restaurateur Jackson Boxer interviews Mr. Chow about his return to the art world. The visuals for the stop-motion animation—which beautifully fuse the themes of art and food—were created by Texan photographer and artist Trey Wright.
