Bonnie Wong is a London based artist born and raised in Hong Kong, a city known for its mixed cultures of western colonialism and oriental traditions. She is currently pursuing her MA in Fine Art at the Royal College of Art in London. She has been working as an illustrator, a children’s book author and a documentary photographer since she graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design in 2015, where she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration.

Bonnie creates artworks using drawings and illustrations along with found images and materials. Growing up amidst the most chaotic and political era of her hometown, she became increasingly interested in the idea of what is speakable and what is not, and a hidden coding system we all hold as we live our everyday lives. Being a vintage map collector, she looks into how things have been transformed from the way they were before. She put her focus on how humans interpret their traces and histories, and their measurable and unmeasurable distances among one another. She searches for connections and codes through the art of maps. Her works explore themes including human relations and boundaries. Inspired by her bilingual culture and upbringing, her works translate intangible and indescribable distances, relationships and emotions into her own humorous pictorial language.

Bonnie’s artworks include zines, murals, installations, prints and stories. She has exhibited in various group shows in Hong Kong, London and other cities in Asia, including K-11 Art Mall Hong Kong, CGP Gallery in London and MOVEMENT in Worcester, United Kingdom.

In 2017, Bonnie joined the Rage Collective and has exhibited in two group shows with artworks responding to various political issues. She is currently working on a series of abstract illustrations for a fiction about the absurdity of mankind, and an ongoing project about the ocean, distances and memories by collecting found photos and positives.
