Wong Ping: Heart Digger

Posted by Fabio 2 July 2019

Wong Ping creates digital and sculptural works that reveal very human, and often universal fantasies, through absurd narratives. Drawing anecdotally from his own social encounters, he elaborates his stories into darkly humorous tales that touch on political and cultural anxieties. Digitally rendered in a seductive, technicolour language that recalls the modernism of Fernand Leger, the pop languages of Tom Wesselman or Allen Jones, as well as the design aesthetic of The Memphis Group and early 1980s video games, Wong’s simple but seductive animations disguise a deeper social critique of technological modernity.
