Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Wang’s pop-inspired artworks, (interlacing childhood cartoons, fashion labels, and seductive slogans together in mixed media graffiti inspired paintings), achieved wide-spread recognition from Boomers to Gen Z collectors new to the art world, but well versed in entrepreneurial consumer culture. Using free-hand painting, graffiti, stencils, cartoon icons, collaged ads, and news print, his child-like canvases both “happy and bright” as well as slightly ominous, hint at darker themes bubbling just below the surface. In Wang’s world, we are experiencing a massive shift to a new pop culture, one dominated by a younger generation’s “bling-bling” brand devotion, digital device addiction, and global consumption.

Wang left China when he was 17, studied art at Wimbledon College, University of the Arts London, receiving an MFA from Chelsea College of Art and Design, University of the Arts London in 2013.
