Biography

Flashing, pop-like imagery; visual and auditory narrations that explicitly touch upon sex, politics and social relations; vibrant installations that extend into three dimensions the artist’s fantastical animation world – these are but cornerstones of Wong Ping’s practice that combines the crass and the colorful to mount a discourse around repressed sexuality, personal sentiments and political limitations. Hong Kong born and raised, Wong Ping discusses his observations of society, from teenage to adulthood, using a visual language that sits on the border of shocking and amusing.

Ultimately, however, Wong’s animations are not meant to be discouraging. They are happy, in a twisted yet realistic way, despite their fantastical scenarios and appearances. They also provide through their rawness a sense of comfort in that even our deepest and most private sentiments or acts are shared by others. In this way, Wong’s work is liberating – a cathartic twist on the trials rooted in daily life.
