Adrian Kay Wong (1991) offers intimate depictions of adolescence through his paintings that balance his own sentimentalities and settle between nostalgia and estrangement. By investigating familial roles and relationships between sons, brothers, fathers, and friends, Wong explores the multifarious facets of their traditional definitions and creates visual, abstracted narratives with a measured simplicity. The artist affectionately attempts to glorify the innocent naiveté of youth, reconciling the vibrancy of juvenility and the struggling confusion associated with growing up.

Wong was raised in the east San Francisco Bay area and now lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
