Born in Hong Kong in 1981, Wong Wai Yin is a visual artist who experiments with a variety of media. Wong graduated with a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree form the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2004, and a Masters in Fine Arts from the University of Leeds, United Kingdom in 2005. She was also the Founder of the Observation Society in Guangzhou. Ranging from painting, sculpture, collage, installations and photography, Wong’s works have won acclaim for her unique, conceptual approach. Possessing an expansive way of thinking beyond traditional studio practices, the artist frequently investigates the nature of what is real or fake, what constitutes art, and what doesn’t. Creating emulators, Wong proceeds to juxtapose these ‘raw’ pieces alongside the original articles, dispelling the notion of an ideal framework, and persuading viewers to question the nature of authenticity; challenging preconceptions whilst blurring boundaries. Wong has exhibited her works extensively in Hong Kong, as well as showcases in Japan, U.S.A, Singapore and Guangzhou.
