Wong Xiang Yi: Whispering Void
Time Out says
Artist Wong Xiang Yi combines her love for manga and traditional Chinese techniques in this series of paintings.
Inspired by her experience as a Fujoshi, a self mocking term for female fans of manga featuring romantic relationship between men, Malaysia-based artist Wong Xiang Yi’s works centers around Japanese manga subcultures. Combining traditional Chinese painting styles and a grid composition akin to a manga storyboard, Wong’s paintings create a unique juxtaposition between style and subject matter.
