Joy Wong is an interdisciplinary artist with immigrant settler heritage in Tkaronto/Toronto. Their practice connects material investigations with the shifting physicality of a racialized and queer body. Lately, their work about mutable surfaces has focused on the metaphors of fermentation, disorientation, and the corporeality of migration. They obtained their BFA from York University and their MFA from Western University. Wong has received grants from the Ontario Arts Council and the Canada Council for the Arts. They were a finalist for the 2018 RBC Canadian Painting Competition and were the 2019 Pope Artist in Residence at NSCAD.
