Boy Kong is a self-taught multi-media artist. Raised in Florida (b.1993, Orlando) and of Chinese-Vietnamese heritage, his growing body of work draws inspiration from a vast array of styles, from Folk and Graffiti to Ukiyo-e and Surrealism, and employs a multitude of disciplines including watercolor, painting, illustration, collage, assemblage, sculpture, and mural art both small- and large-scale. Boy's distinct aesthetic knows no boundaries; its distinction, in fact, stems from his penchant for variety and his endless exploration of color in both theory and practice. Boy will frequently conflate and blur the lines between animal, mineral and vegetable when composing his subjects, which are further enlivened by his use of pastels and neons, lending the final works an electric-cum-folklore-ish quality of his own design. His work has been exhibited in a number of solo and group shows throughout the U.S. since 2012; he has had murals and other original works commissioned by the Audubon Mural Project, University of Central Florida, The New Republic magazine, and The LISA Project NYC, among others; and is included in the corporate collections of Nike, WeWork, and Rag & Bone. Boy Kong divides his time between Orlando and New York City.
