Biography

///

Olivia Wong is a Toronto based artist anddesigner. She recently graduated from Ontario College of Art and DesignUniversity – majoring in Material Art and Design: Jewellery and minoring inPhotography. 

From a young age she had (and always will have) an interest in jewellery and wearable objects. She enjoys working with metal as well as alternative materials such as acrylic and wood. With the human body in mind, she takes consideration of how wearable objects are worn, how objects are interacted with and what messages these objects convey.

Inspired by artists such Salvador Dali, Francesca Woodman and JoelPeter Witkin, she creates images that discuss the boundaries between realityand the surreal. Working with self-portraiture and experimental processes sheis able to create “an alternative realm for self-realization” – S.Ramljak. 

 Previously exhibited at The Independents ShowSummer 2017, Artusiasm, Scotiabank Contact Photography show at OCADU, EmergingToronto Artist Awards Gala, as well as last years Toronto West ArtsCollaborative ‘s show at the CNE in 2016.
