After I interviewed Miyamura, I got the chance to interview Adrian Wong. I reblogged his work before, it’s pretty awesome. He was pleasant to interview and he’s also about to graduate from SAIC as well. Take a look at his website and his work. Oh, and our full conversation after the link.
“I am an artist currently based in Chicago, born and raised in the Bay, California. My paintings are introspective explorations that involve a reminiscence of my repressed yet nostalgic past. I decontextualize these experiences and memories in an, ultimately, rationalized and detached mentality in order to convey these events in a way that is not of emotional attachment, but of interest and understanding. This approach to art making—that is, this inspection of my self and the paint on a surface—is to create work that may communicate both to the viewers’ visual experiences as well as their sentiments.”
