Artist statement: Wing Na Wong is a photorealist painter. Her specialty is portraiture, depicting people or animals with expressive details. Photorealism has always been her interest, but her decision to officially make it her career began when she started fine tuning her techniques. Creating portraits and bringing them alive with details gives her all the satisfaction and encouragement she needs for the next art piece. It is telling the story of a person, a biography, using her paint brush to depict the many life experiences that we all go through with visual clues and artistic details.

I Have Worked With

  • This portrait painting is a custom portrait that I would paint based on a photo. The portrait painting is created using oil paint on canvas, with traditional fine art techniques, in a classical and photorealistic portrait style. As a figurative painter who is also a working illustrator, I have a lot of experience rendering likenesses.
