is an American artist based in Los Angeles.
His paintings revisit personal experiences and offer these private reflections again as intimate depictions of adolescence. Wong explores these narratives through investigations of familial roles and relationships, realized by visual interpretations that examine the many facets of their definitions—what is it to be a son, a brother, a friend, a father? This dialogue manifests itself visually in a measured simplicity—an outcome of Wong balancing his own sentimentalities that sway between nostalgia and estrangement. Wong affectionately glorifies the innocent naiveté of youth, reconciling the vibrancy of juvenility and the struggling confusion that is growing up Wong attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, graduating with a Bachelors in Fine Arts and as a recipient of the BFA Fellowship Award.
