Joy Wong

  • Multidisciplinary Artist

Joy Wong is an interdisciplinary artist based in Tkaronto, with Cantonese immigrant settler ancestry. She works primarily in painting, print media, poetry, and sculpture. Their practice focuses on the intersections of disgust and beauty, decay and decadence, and connects material investigations with the shifting physicality of a queer and racialized body.

Joy obtained her BFA from York University with a double major in Visual Arts and Creative Writing and her MFA from Western University where she received an SSHRC grant for her research. Joy Wong was a finalist for the 2018 RBC Canadian Painting Competition, was the 2019 Pope Artist in Residence at NSCAD, and is part of the 2021 RBC Emerging Artist Residency Program.
