Wong Ping is one of the most eccentric artists of our time. The bright colours and garish sound effects of his animated videos are reminiscent of retro video games or music videos, his visual language moves on the border between shock and humour. Inspired by everyday observations, Wong Ping creates disturbing and crude narratives that challenge conventional concepts of human desire, obsession, shame, isolation, or repressed sexuality.
